Seminar: Flood and Erosion Hazard Mitigation for North Shore, O’ahu

Jonathan Chapman, John Melve & Andrew Storey Graduate Students Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Zoom Meeting Link: Meeting ID: 935 9608 7383 Passcode: OREseminar The ORE 783 Capstone Design course invited detailed proposals from engineering students for FEL-1 and -2 level studies. The aim is to assess technical, economic, and regulatory feasibility of engineering measures that can reduce flood and erosion hazards on Oʻahu’s North Shore while taking into consideration climate change. We present three preliminary design solutions to mitigate three respective challenges experienced along

Seminar: Towards an Operational Dispersive Nearshore Wave Model for Assessment of Coastal Flooding

Holmes 247 2540 Dole Street, Honolulu, HI, United States

Fatima-Zahra Mihami & Dr. Volker Roeber PhD Student, E2S Chair HPC-Waves Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour, France Location Information: **this seminar will be held both in person (Holmes Hall 247) and over Zoom** Meeting ID: 960 4654 5799 Passcode: OREseminar This will be a joint seminar between ORE and CIMAR. Quantitative assessments of wave-driven run-up and inundation scenarios have been of high interest for coastal residents, engineers, emergency managers, and scientists. Computational approaches of coastal flooding from waves only have been widely based on empirical formulations but nowadays make increasingly use of numerical models. Due to
