A storm surge model is coupled with a wave model and then the storm waves and surges in Suo-nada and Yatsushiro-kai Bays, Japan, caused by Typhoon 9918, are hindcasted with the coupling model. The effect of water surface elevations and currents on the wave height and period in these bays is examined. The influence of the wave age dependent drag coefficient on the magnitude of the storm surges is also investigated.
