Storm SurgeΒΆ

Sea level height for Sandy Cove was extracted from the CHS water level observations and compared to the model results using a notebook.

Raw Sea level from the Model is well-correlated with the observations and when the unmodelled constituents are added, the correlation improves. Even when removing the tides, the sea level is very well predicted.

One note, the maximum amplitude of the tides seems small. See the first two figures.
