Abstract

Strom surge has been a significant threat to many Japanese cities that are located in the western inland sea area because of frequent and intense typhoons that pass the area every year. This interdisciplinary research aims to simulate storm surge and flood evacuation behaviour of residents living in Takamatsu, Japan which is facing Seto Inland Sea. The tidal flow of Seto Inland Sea and storm surge flooding is simulated based on the 2004 typhoons data that seriously flooded the study area. The storm surge simulation informs the evacuation behaviour, which is simulated by using an agent-based model.
