A summary of storm surge highwater mark hydrograph and wave data acquired during and subsequent to Hurricane Alicia is presented. The data were obtained and assembled as part of a long-term research effort by the Corps of Engineers to establish a quantitative data set with the objective of providing, in a series of documents, the data necessary for simulation and verification of numerical surge models. The data contained herein were obtained primarily by the Waterways Experiment Station and the Galveston District of the Corps of Engineers with supplemental data from contributing agencies and institutions. Additional information is included in the form of photographs and descriptive narrative to aid investigators in assessing the degree of importance of an individual measurement for the purpose of model verification. Elevation, Spectra, Frequency, Graphs.

A renowned scientist takes us through the devastating and unprecedented events of Hurricane Sandy, using it to explain our planet’s changing climate, and what we need to do to protect ourselves and our cities for the future. Was Hurricane Sandy a freak event—or a harbinger of things to come? Was climate change responsible? What connects the spiraling clouds our satellites saw from space, the brackish water that rose up over the city’s seawalls, and the slow simmer of greenhouse gases? Why weren't we better prepared? In this fascinating and accessible work of popular science, atmospheric scientist and Columbia University professor Adam Sobel addresses these questions, combining scientific explanation with first-hand experience of the event itself. He explains the remarkable atmospheric conditions that gave birth to Sandy and determined its path. He gives us insight into the sophisticated science that led to the forecasts of the storm before it hit, as well as an understanding of why our meteorological vocabulary failed our leaders in warning us about this unprecedented storm—part hurricane, part winter-type nor’easter, fully deserving of the title “Superstorm.” Storm Surge brings together the melting glaciers, the shifting jet streams, and the warming oceans to make clear how our changing climate will make New York and other cities more vulnerable than ever to huge storms—and how we need to think differently about these long-term risks if we hope to mitigate the damage. Engaging, informative, and timely, Sobel’s book provokes us to rethink the future of our climate and how we can better prepare for the storms to come.

Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents an all-new, in-continuity story set within the universe of Dean Koontz's Frankenstein novel series. While healing from a beating she suffered at the hands of Victor Helios (the madman once known as Dr. Frankenstein and her own maker), Erika Five decides to leave the comfort of her glassed-in porch and bottle of cognac to explore Victor's secret home lab, which she believes is an antechamber to something more sinister. With the help of a decapitated head named Karloff, Erika finds a secret lab and within discovers that Victor's experiments are not limited to his attempts at creating a race of super-immortals. No, he has constructed a mirror-like portal to another universe... one of infinite realities that Victor is trying to bridge for his own horrible reasons!

In the Pacific, as USS Walker is repaired and updated after a previous battle and Matt Reddy is healing from his wounds, planning begins for a bold raid on the very heart of the Grik Empire. But time is running out for the Alliance army in Indiaa, and the Allied forces in the west must gather in an unprecedented land, air, and sea campaign to destroy the mighty Grik battle fleet and break through to their relief. All other plans go on hold when the attempt proves more difficult—and more heartbreakingly costly—than anyone imagined. Meanwhile, the struggle continues on other fronts near and far: in the jungles of Borno in distant southern Africa and in the Americas, where the Allies are finally learning the terrible truth about the twisted Dominion. The Alliance is on the offensive everywhere, but their enemies have a few surprises, including new weaponry and new tactics...and a stunning geographic advantage that Reddy never suspected. Until now.

A Numerical Computation Of The Storm Surge Of Hurricane Carla 1961 In The Gulf Of Mexico

The storm surge of hurricane Carla 1961 in the Gulf of Mexico is computed by numerical integration of the dynamical equations, Input data consist of sea-level distributions of observed wind and pressure at six-hour intervals throughout the three-day period selected for the study. The computation is carried out in two steps. The first is on a rough mesh (mesh length 48 nautical miles) for the entire Gulf; bottom friction is disregarded in this step. The second is a finemesh computation (mesh length 9.6 nautical miles) on the northwestern continental shelf, where the storm surge was most prominent. Quadratic bottom friction is assumed in the latter step. The fine-mesh region is chosen so as to give good resolution in the neighborhood of Galveston, Texas. Computed variations of sea level are in good agreement with tide-gage observations in this region. (Author).
