    An assessment of storm induced water levels in Norfolk Virginia (VA) and Chesapeake Bay using an interactively coupled wave and current numerical model driven by a numerical atmospheric model versus actual observations is presented. The reason for the interactive coupling is that this type of model coupling has been found to greatly improve coastal inundation modeling in another coastal domain. The model system is applied in an area where coastal flooding is likely to increase in the near future and beyond, because the Norfolk VA area has been found to be a “hot spot” along the eastern seaboard as regards rising coastal water levels along the U.S. Atlantic Eastern Seaboard. To assess the variability of sea level we conducted an empirical decomposition of the Sewell’s Point water level data and found that there are eight modes of variability ranging from monthly to se..
