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.

Compiling delft3D with visual studio 2015

Compiling delft3D with visual studio 2015

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 8/22/17 Recent Posts
When opening visual studio 2015 I get the error that some files are incompatible, when I try to compile delft3D_open with visual astudio 2015 my machine freeze at about 1/3 of the compilation and have to reboot

Note: I have both 2017 and 2015 visual studio installed could this be the problem?

Can someone please help me resolve this issue.

Hi Elisabeth,

Please use the latest tagged version, currently

Please run the "" script; that should solve the errors you get. See this page for more info.

The order of installation is important: First VS2015, then VS2017 (from old to new), then Ifort.
