Short summary
We report the results on the effectiveness of an improved approach to surge and wave simulation by revising wind force. We tested the wind dissipation effects caused by land roughness with various land use types near the coast for wind field generation. As a result, better agreement between the simulated and measured storm winds have been found when considering wind dissipation effects. This modified wind force leads to clearly improved results for storm surge and wave simulation.
