A guide to ‘good practice’ storm inundation mapping and modelling

This ‘good practice’ guideline is a condensed version of Lee et al (2013) and aims to provide assistance to local governments and others involved in coastal inundation modelling and mapping for the Queensland coast (referred to as Coastal Hazard Mappers (CHM). The guideline offers insight and recommended methods to analyse complicated coastal inundation but does not include prescriptive techniques that can be applied in all study areas. Technical judgement, experience and understanding of coastal and hydraulic engineering is required to model and map inundation.
