intro story Coast / Estuary

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. 
On this discussion page you can post questions, research discussions or just share your experience about modelling coastal and/or estuarine systems with Delft3D FM.

Hi, good morning, I'm a student at the Metropolitan Autonomous University Unit Xochimilco, Mexico, I have a laptop with a 64-bit Debian (jessie) operating system.
I have read the Delft3d installation manual for linux but I do not understand it at all, could you guide me about the whole installation process please?

NT: Try to install delft3d on a machine with ubuntu manage to follow and replicate many of the steps in the manual but do not manage to move beyond the problem of installing NETCD-F, I hope also can support me with that.

Hi Jorge,

Pls refer to ..\src\build_ubuntu.16.04LT.readme file for the Ubuntu installation. For Debian system, the procedures should be similar.
