In this work, we use a physically based assessment to estimate the risk of hurricane storm surge at four sites along the U.S. North Atlantic coast. We estimate storm surge return levels statistically by forcing a hydrodynamic model with the wind and pressure field data of thousands of hurricanes. Rather than relying on the limited historical records, we force the model with synthetic hurricanes, which are generated from a statistical-deterministic model.
