Goutam Kumar Sen, Madhumita Das and Meenakshi Chatterjee

Abstract

The Regional Ocean Model System (ROMS) driven by NCEP reanalyzed forcing fields together with QuickScatt wind observations, has been used to study evolution of surges in the Northern Bay of Bengal ( adjacent to West Bengal Coast of India ) due to Cyclone AILA ( 24-25 May 2009 ). The model was, very consistent and able to simulate basic sea level variation very well. A comparison with observation at aparticular location (near Digha) was also provided. The results show that ROMS model is robust enough to reproduce surge impact very consistently.
