Past, present, and future nuisance flooding on the Charleston peninsula
The annual number of observed and forecasted flood events (NF) as a function time. The forecast was derived from the empirical relationship between NF and the annual sum of monthly MHW, shown in the inset, where (R2 = 0.83, p<0.0001, N = 58). Calculated NF are from observed monthly MHW data, and the forecasted flood events are from forecasted monthly MHW (Eq 2). Also shown (-—-) is NF from the quadratic model of Sweet and Park .
