Abstract

This paper reviews recent studies that take a physically-based approach to better assess and manage hurricane risk. Such a methodology includes three components: modeling the storm climatology (which definesTC risk in terms of the upper tail of the stormstatistics); modeling landfalling hazards; and characterizing damage and losses.
