For the derivation of the Hydraulic Boundary Conditions (HBCs), information on extreme winds over open-water areas is required. To this end, a new method is developed that will answer the need for a description of not only the storm’s peak impact but also the spatial and temporal characteristics of extreme storms. The method relies on using highresolution atmospheric model simulations rather than on using spatial interpolation of sparse point measurements of wind speed. The HARMONIE model, which has a grid spacing of 2.5 km, has been selected to perform the simulations.
