Modeling and observations of wave overtopping flooding on a southerncalifornia beach
Author : T.W. GALLIEN(1), & R.T. GUZA(1)
ABSTRACT
In January 2014, waves ran up and overtopped a southern California beach causing localized backshore flooding. SWAN
and XBeach are used to estimate overtopping rates that are coupled to a two dimensional nonlinear shallow water model
simulating backshore flooding. Predictions are evaluated against the observed flood extent. Random realizations of
XBeach had similar maximum runup, however corresponding overtopping rates are extremely sensitive to runup elevation.
Maximum runup elevation and overtopping rates were strongly dependent on XBeach initialization depth
