Summary
Abstract: LTER/VCR004:
This is an inventory of tropical storms on VCR from 1650 to the 1988.
While tropical storms are infrequent (several landfalls per 100 years)
the magnitude of the disturbance is great. Storm surges 10 feet plus
are expected with waves of 17 to 23 feet offshore. The record being
developed can serve as a benchmark when the next tropical storm comes.
Comparisons of frequency and magnitude can be detailed and can be used
in model studies. All of the major storms from 1620-1900 that impacted
the Delmarva Peninsula have been identified and descriptive text
located. Detailed meteorological records for tropical storms for the
post-1900 period are available in-house.
