Abstract: The recent decade or so has witnessed proliferating reclamation projects around the Bohai Sea, leading to obvious shoreline change which could in turn change the tide transportation and have some effects on the storm surge. Based on the Finite Volume Coastal Ocean Model(FVCOM), four typical tropical and extratropical storm surges are produced with tidal parameters and wind field compelling using the 2000 and 2010 coastline,respectively. The hydrodynamic model is forced by using wind data obtained from the Weather Research forecasting Model(WRF). The simulated storm surges agree well with the observed data. The impact of shoreline changes on storm surge in the Bohai Sea are analyzed in a detailed manner. The probabilities of potential storm surge disasters are studied and evaluated on the areas of Caofeidian Port, Tianjin Port and Huanghua Port.
