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.

Clean up of model failed

Clean up of model failed

I had a flow model running no problem (in both 2D and 3D), I then made another model exactly the same but with a new (much finer mesh) grid and now the model still runs but fails just at the end when it gets to the "cleaning" stage.

The error is gives me is "Couldn't open grid nc file: C:/ because of err nr : - 2002" and "Clean up of Flow model has failed"

If I look for results after this, there isn't any time series to query or anything in the model itself but it is still writing the his, map and restart files as outputs which look normal however when I look into those files using Quickplot then the results are clearly not right - somethings gone wrong.

What can I do to fix this cleaning error?
