Abstract: This study focuses on the upgrade of an integrated storm surge forecasting system for the Changjiang Estuary with development tools such as VB.NET, Intel Fortran, etc. The forecasting efficiency with wave consideration has significantly improved by the implementation of SWAN parallel computation. Hydrodynamic model could provide much faster forecasting with the optimization and modularization of the source code. New software interface was designed to improve the compatibility and stability. The comparison between the original and upgraded version is given with 5 storm surge simulation, with an aim to show the system improvement on forecasting efficiency and precision. It shows the model precision of upgraded version is guaranteed. The efficiency is quantitatively increased by 68% and 60% with consideration and neglecting of wave effect, respectively.

Key words: visualization system, storm surge forecasting, Changjiang Estuary
