Coast / Estuary

Coastal systems are among the most dynamic physical systems on earth and are subject to a large variety of forces. The morphodynamic changes occurring to coastlines worldwide are of great interest and importance. These changes occur as a result of the erosion of sediments, its subsequent transport as bed load or suspended load, and eventual deposition. 
Estuaries are partly enclosed water bodies that have an open connection to the coast. Estuaries generally have one or more branching channels, intertidal mudflats and/or salt marshes. Intertidal areas are of high ecological importance and trap sediments (sands, silts, clays and organic matter).
Within the Delft3D modelling package a large variation of coastal and estuarine physical and chemical processes can be simulated. These include waves, tidal propagation, wind- or wave-induced water level setup, flow induced by salinity or temperature gradients, sand and mud transport, water quality and changing bathymetry (morphology). Delft3D can also be used operationally e.g. storm, surge and algal bloom forecasting.

RE: how is it possible to define some special parameters as output variable

Hi all
I need to see the variation of some parameters which are not included in the output file. in my case i need to have bed and suspended load transport due to current and wave separately.
Is there any general solution for that.
Best Regards

Hi all

I found that by changing the default values of related variables( e.g. morpar%moroutput%sbwuv) from .false. to .true. in the morphology_data_module.f90, the variables would be added in trim file.But maybe using proper keywords(which unfortunately i have not found yet) will be better than changing the code.

Best Regards
