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.

Delft Dashboard Could not retrieve

Dear fellow delft dashboard user,

I have tried to create tidal boundary using delft-dashboard on this week but it couldn't. The command prompt showed that I cannot retrieve from the server.

Is anybody have the same problem?

What can cause this problem to appear? Is it from the server? Can I use the delft dashboard offline?

Best regards,

Hi, I am having the exact same issue. Looks to me like the Deltares server is down. Hopefully someone can assist with this soon!

Same issue here too, looks like a server problem to me. Can someone please clarify? How long will it take?
