Development of a numerical wave uprush prediction tool for the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence River shoreline

Wave uprush and the potential for flooding are natural hazards that must be determined by the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) prior to the approval of a near-shore development. The purpose of calculating wave uprush is to recommend building sites that are outside of the wave uprush area (and floodplain in general) to land owners and municipalities, as well as provide information for flood proofing of existing buildings, roadways, etc. The CRCA has manually calculated wave uprush at 200 sites along the more than 200 km of shoreline in eastern Lake Ontario and the St.
