dc.description.abstract The Andaman Islands face the surge disaster threat as their north-south orientation comes across the eastward path of severe cyclones moving from the Andaman sea known for the genesis of many severe cyclones that traverse the Bay of Bengal regularly. In the present study, the potential of storm-induced surge, a natural disaster of sea-level rise for the Andaman Islands has been investigated. A two-dimensional hydrodynamic model is employed for the simulation of storm surge characteristics and demarcation of the coastal-flooding extent of thickly inhabiting Port Blair region of the Andaman Islands in the case of a severe cyclone of November, 1989.
