ESTOFS Surge Model

ESTOFS Surge Model

ESTOFS (Extratropical Surge and Tide Operational Forecast System) is a storm surge model with a resolution of 2.5 km. It uses the circulation model ADCIRC, tides are included and it is forced winds and pressures from the NCEP Global Forecast System (GFS). The ESTOFS model is run by NOAA on NCEP's central computing system four times daily out to 180 hours (7.5 days) producing storm surge guidance for non-tropical systems.

Data is available in GRIB and NetCDF formats via NOMADS: http://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/
