Summary

XBeach was used to simulate hurricanes Ivan (2004) and Katrina (2005) at Dauphin Island, Alabama, under present-day conditions and future sea level rise (SLR) scenarios as described in Passeri and others, 2018. Model inputs and outputs in the form of topography and bathymetry are provided here. For further information regarding model input generation and visualization of model output topography and bathymetry, refer to Passeri and others, 2018.
