Highlights

  • New nested flood model is used to study dynamics of coastal flooding.
  • Coastal flooding results from a complex set of tides, storm surges and rivers inflows.
  • Modelling system comprises of two dynamically linked models: ocean model and coastal nested model.
  • Model is capable of resolving hydrodynamics at scales commensurate with flow features.
  • Urban flood model accurately determine flood wave propagation patterns and inundation extents.
