Computer scientists, coastal scientists and engineers at LSU are working to improve a critical tool that is widely used to predict the effects of large storms as they approach the coast. They are making the ADCIRC multi-scale coastal circulation computer model faster and more dynamic. With nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population living near the coast, the scientists' work may impact millions of peoples' lives. The STORM Project is funded by the National Science Foundation.
