Abstract : This paper discusses two Inland Flooding Models which have features applicable to the study of river flow and flooding. The models are presently being used to address field needs in the area of storm surge studies. They provide a tool to predict water level and currents where these variables are needed in the design of coastal protection projects. They are also being used to study the changes in water level or current patterns which a coastal project might cause. These could be changes in the daily tidal circulation as well as changes related to storm events.
