Abstract

A field survey of the storm surge inundation induced by Cyclone Nargis was conducted in Ayeyarwaddy Delta, Myanmar in a period of July 3rd to July 7th, 2008. Inundation heights were measured at five townships, Kungyangon, Dedaye, Pyapon, Bogale and Labutta. After tidal correction using a tidal chart provided by Myanmar Port Authority, it was found that the storm surge anomaly had been up to 4.7 m at Labutta where the cyclone had had a landfall. It became less than 2 m around Bogale Area, but again showed a large value of nearly 4 m in Kungyangon Area, south of Yangon. Disagreement of inundation conditions were found in some areas, such as Labutta and Bogale with previously obtained inundation maps composed from satellite images.
