Abstract

In Japan long storm surge defense has been constructed for the deterministic design storm water level based on the storm surge by Typhoon Vera in 1959. Yet storm water level may exceed the current design one in small probability. This study, therefore, estimated the extreme storm surge and storm water level in Japanese major bays, by using a stochastic typhoon model and tide observation data. The result shows that the return period of the current design storm water level at three major locations, Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka, is a few hundred years or more.
