Abstract

Time series of water levels over a 5-year period from 2013 to 2017 at 6 tide gauges were used to examine the contribution of forerunner to the storm surge along the Vietnam coast. The forerunner is generated when there is a gradual increase in mean water level in two or three days before the tropical cyclones making landfall.
Results of this research demonstrates that forerunner contributes up to 50% of total water levels and the combination of forerunner and storm surge due to onshore wind set up and wave set up was able to reach much higher of 0.7 meters.
