Current and future storm tide risk study for Fiji. These risks are quantified by estimating 20, 50 and 100, 500, 1000 year maximum storm tide height return intervals under a variety of climate conditions and sea levels using a combined statistical/dynamical method. This data collection comprises around 50GB, >10000 files of Tropical Cyclone Tracks, Storm tide model runs, other input information, derived statistical gridded data. Access to this data collection is restricted and relies on scripts.

Lineage: Historic and synthetic tropical cyclone tracks and associated wind, sea level pressure and water level fields. Statistical analysis.

Global tide model provided by Oregon State University.

This data collection is a product is funded and supported by the Australian Government through the Pacific Australian Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Programme (PACCSAP). PACCSAP was funded by Department of Foreign Affair & Trade, managed by the Department of the Environment and the science was delivered by the partnership between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology. This output was produced as part of PACCSAP Project 1.4.4: Effect of climate change variability and change on extreme sea levels and coastal impacts.
