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.

Errors while compiling

Hi everyone,

I am a beginning as a user of Delft3D, I have been trying to compile the software, however, I have not had success at all.
I am using VisualStudio2015 (update3) and iFortran2017 (not sure if this has been tested before).

Does anybody have an Installation guide? I followed the procedure as indicated into the file README (into Src folder), but when I open the file ''delft3d_open.sln'' using VisualStudio it shows many errors (take a look at the migration report attached). I did not pay attention at those erros and tried to compile anyway, but VisualStudio throws out an error while compiling (it slowed down my laptop).

Any hint about how to make the compilation process 'easier'?

Thanks in advance.

Hi José,

See the link to a post at the prerequisites.
