Abstract: Traditional methods to assess the probability of storm-induced erosion and flooding from extreme
water levels have limited use along the U.S. West Coast where swell dominates erosion and storm surge
is limited. This effort presents methodology to assess the probability of erosion and flooding for the U.S.
West Coast from extreme total water levels (TWLs), but the approach is applicable to coastal settings
worldwide. TWLs were derived from 61 years of wave and water level data at shore-perpendicular
transects every 100-m along open coast shorelines. At each location, wave data from the Global Ocean
Waves model were downscaled to the nearshore and used to empirically calculate wave run-up. Tides
were simulated using the Oregon State University?s tidal data inversion model and non-tidal residuals
were calculated from sea-surface temperature and pressure anomalies. Wave run-up was combined
with still water levels to generate hourly TWL estimates and extreme TWLs for multiple return periods.
Extremes were compared to onshore morphology to determine erosion hazards and define the
probability of collision, overwash, and inundation.
