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 Error (Windows 10-VS2017-Intel Parallel Studio 2018-Python 3.7)

That is the first time I'm compiling a software (Delft3D 4.04) on Windows, maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I installed DS_Flex License Manager, then Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and Intel Parallel Studio 2018. I had already installed Python 3.7 and .NET Framework 4.7.

I executed "...\src\" and opened "delft3d_open.sln" on Visual Studio 2017. But when I compiled it, I got some problems (attached). Also, bin folder wasn't created.


So, what should I do?

Hi Breylla,

Some Microsoft modules are missing in your VisualStudio installation. Please follow the (updated) instructions at the prerequisites.
