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.

When I try to run the Deft3D softwere

Starting Delft3D-FLOW computation ...
Deltares, Delft3D-FLOW Version, Mar 15 2011, 10:57:16
flow2d3d.dll entry RUNME

Part I - Initialisation Time Dep. Data module...
runid : test_run_Khalid
Part II - Creating intermediate files...
ABORT: error returned by tdatmain
Flow exited abnormally

child process exited abnormally

Please help me

One of the timers in your input file(s) is incorrect. You should check the start and stop time of all the timers (computation and output timers) in your mdf file and also the start and stop time
of your additional files i.e. boundary conditions, river discharge etc,

best wishes for the 2013,
