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: Coupling ERROR 6005 between FLOW and WAQ

Dear, I need help with the coupling error between FLOW and WAQ.

I've done several tests between computers, different builds of Delft and output times between the TRIH, TRIM and COM files.

The error message is below and in the attached LOG file, and appears after a certain processing time of the coupling.

Thank you in advance for your help and guidance!

I did a test with and without DISCHARGE and verified that the coupling only works if you put at least one DISCHARGE avoid the error:

NEFIS message 6005: Element 'MNKSRC' does not exist in definition file

I tested with a WAQ (inlet) tutorial.
