The effects of high waves should be considered to accurately interpret storm surges occurring in coastal areas; however, the general theory is that the rise in water level due to radiation stress would have little impact on the west and south coasts of South Korea because waves tend to be considerably attenuated due to the topographic characteristics of the rias style coast. However, in a study by Mase et al. (2011), the storm surge owing to Typhoon Isewan was predicted; the results obtained indicated that the water level considerably rose due to the effects of waves even in Nagoya Bay, where high waves do not develop due to topographic characteristics. Therefore, the present study aimed to build a storm surge model for the southeastern coast (rias style) of South Korea and to examine the sensitivity of the wave to the rise in water level. By examining the typhoon, a rise in water level due to radiation stress was observed in some areas on the southeastern coast of South Korea. This result suggests the necessity of a storm surge analysis considering the effect of high waves even in areas where they do not develop due to topographic characteristics.
