Numerical sensitivity studies on the physics of storm tides in the German bight, North Sea

The most relevant processes contributing to significant water level variations at the German North Sea coast are the tides, external surges, generated on the Northeast Atlantic, and surges generated by storms over the North Sea. If these processes occur in adverse combinations their effects might accumulate to scenarios of extremely high water levels. The aim of this study is to provide new insights into the nonlinear interactions between the different processes and to determine adverse process combinations.
