Professional training, paid support, online tools, and ADCIRC data.

About Us

With decades of experience in ADCIRC source code development, production of real time storm surge guidance for tropical cyclones with ADCIRC+SWAN, and delivering custom training for ADCIRC with live events, we are the premier source of professional support for all things ADCIRC.

Jason Fleming

Jason Fleming (CV) has been working on the ADCIRC source code since 2001 and has development experience with every part of the source code. As the Lead Operator of our real time modeling system (the ADCIRC Surge Guidance System, ASGS) he has provided client facing decision support for hurricane storm surge since 2006. He is the founder, organizer, and co-instructor of the annual ADCIRC Boot Camp series of live events to welcome, support, and edify newcomers to the ADCIRC community.

Janelle Fleming

Janelle Fleming (CV) designs, develops, and operates real time statistical model validation workflows for Seahorse Coastal Consulting, a woman-owned business that specializes in software operations for storm surge forecasting and scientific data analysis. She also coordinates business development initiatives and maintains financial controls.

Brett Estrade

Brett Estrade (CV) has been building, benchmarking, and automating the ADCIRC source code since 2001 during his work at the Naval Research Laboratory's Ocean Dynamics and Prediction Branch. He has experience porting ADCIRC to new platforms and providing client facing technical support. He is the Software Architect for the ASGS and its Primary Operator for Texas during the Atlantic Hurricane Season.

Live Events

We've launched our save-the-date website for ADCIRC Week 2024, check it out for more details and to sign up for a discount code!We founded the ADCIRC Boot Camp live training event in 2010 and started co-organizing the ADCIRC Users Group Meeting in 2011. We've evolved these events into ADCIRC Week, an annual event that includes updates on the latest research, tools, applications, and training for the ADCIRC community.Our live events have been hosted at the US Naval Research Laboratory (Stennis, MS), the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center (Vicksburg, MS), the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (College Park, MD), FM Global (Norwood, MA), the UT Center for Space Research (Austin, TX), Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge, LA), and most recently at Tulane University (New Orleans, LA).

Online Courses

Our live training events (like ADCIRC Week 2024) are very successful, but we've often received feedback that one week of training is not enough, and our participants want more! To meet this demand, we are building online courses with video content, exercises, and quizzes to test your knowledge. We're starting with visualization techniques for ADCIRC input and output (now available for pre-order), and will gradually expand our content to cover everything that an aspiring ADCIRC expert needs to know.


Keeping an ADCIRC project on schedule and within budget depends on great tools that allow ADCIRC analysts to hit the ground running and keep them from having to reinvent the wheel. So we're taking the best parts of our extensive software infrastructure for ADCIRC and deploying them as single page web applications with supportive training to empower our clients and stakeholders in their own engineering projects.


In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina in 2005, the need for reliable high resolution flood modeling for hurricane inundation became apparent. In response, we developed the ADCIRC Surge Guidance System (ASGS) to provide decision support for officials tasked with operating critical infrastructure.During a storm, we run our modeling system on a fleet of supercomputers to produce actionable guidance for the severity, timing and location of storm surge inundation. We also produce results for wind speed, wind direction, and wave action. We share these results in cooperation with collaborators including CERA.As hurricanes form and approach the US coastline, we use forecast advisories from the National Hurricane Center to update our guidance every six hours for use by official decision makers including the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, FEMA, the US Coast Guard, engineering firms, insurance underwriters and adjusters, and many others.
