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.

Progress Monitor Window does not show
Answer (Unmark)
7/8/16 8:58 AM

To start, I am using the Delft3D GUI 4.01.01.rc.03 on a Windows 10 personal laptop.

I am trying to run the TIDE examples in the tutorial folder, and the analysis (for all subsystems Analysis, Prediction, Hilow, etc) don't seem to run. The Progress Monitor Window doesn't show as it's supposed to, so I have no idea on what stage of the analysis it is, if it even started at all. However, when I check the Task Manager, Tidal Analysis and Prediction of Tides (32 bit) is listed there as part of background processes. I waited if the output files will eventually be printed, but after an hour the output files were not generated.

I wonder if anyone else encountered this, and what you did to fix it.

I have similar problem. Did you make it work somehow? If so, please do tell me.

Or if any administrators could please help us shed some light with this problem. Thank you very much.

Hi Niño,

I have not run TIDE since I posted this. But I ran it today, and it worked. It's been a while since I encountered the error before, I really cannot tell what was different that led to the change in result. Anyway, if it helps, I am attaching a sample of Analysis inputs.

The .obs file consists tide levels at 10-minute intervals for Feb 1, 2016 00:00 to Feb 29, 2016 23:50.

In the .ina file, I considered 0 coupling, 1 instrument, and 1 subseries

Hope this helps.
