ETSS

Extratropical Storm Surge

The Extratropical Storm Surge Model (ETSS), or ET-SURGE, is a coastal near-shore wave model used to estimate coastal water level under extratropical storm conditions. ETSS was developed by the National Weather Service (NWS) Meteorological Development Laboratory (MDL), based largely upon the SLOSH model (or Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes). The model provides one to 22 hour advanced predictions of storm surge four times daily.
