Short summary
Storm surges, tides, and high river flows often combine to cause flooding in estuaries, a problem known as compound flooding. In this study, we investigate these factors and how changes to estuary and river geometry influence peak water levels. This study offers an analytical framework for reducing estuary flood risk via a better understanding of how bathymetry, surge timescale, and river discharge affect surge and tidal amplitudes and flood heights and inundation in these systems.
