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.

"File not found" error

Hey everyone,

A strange issue popped up while attempting to run a new model today. The tri-diag file reads: "ERROR File not found: grid01.enc". I have checked and double-checked and grid01.enc is in the folder with the rest of the files, so I'm not sure why this message is appearing. Any ideas?

Brakes are perhaps one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. Without them, going through a drive through would mean something else entirely. All joking aside, brakes are what allow your vehicle to slow down or stop. When they begin acting up, driver’s may feel uncomfortable or worried their vehicle may not stop at all.  When the brake light comes on, there’s no need to panic. There’s a reason this light has been triggered, here are the most common reasons why: A common reason, particularly if you’re driving an unfamiliar car is to not fully lower the the parking brake lever. On a manual parking brake, under the lever is a cable which when the lever is pulled up, the cable tenses and applies the brakes

Don’t be fooled by waste disposal units located under the sink. Throwing food waste in the sink is a sure recipe for clogging. Most food particles don’t dissolve easily, thus resulting in a clogged drain. Always scrape your dishes and utensils clean of excess food (in the trash) before proceeding to do the dishes.
Grease and OilsWhile others might argue that fats, oils, and grease shouldn’t cause blockages, these agents are notorious for reducing your sink’s draining capacity, especially when cleaning up with cold water. Grease can be a pain to clear, but with the right strategies, as we’ll discuss, you can easily get rid of the grease and fat residues that build up over time.
