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.

Is it possible to run a 2DH morphodynamic model (with waves and tides) using the Delft3D Hydro-Morphodynamics & Water Quality 4.01.00 Windows precompiled version with mpich?

Or, do I need to compile my own source code on Windows in order to use mpich and thus, parallel computation?

Hi Alejandro,

When you have bought a service package, you will receive precompiled executables which you can use to do the computations. If you don't have a service package, you have to compile the kernels yourself and only the GUI will be delivered by Deltares.

Thank you very much, Adri!

I understand now.
