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.

Space varying boundary condition through TAPR file in Delft 3d wave

Space varying boundary condition through TAPR file in Delft 3d wave

Hi everyone

I want to create space varying boundary condition for wave model. But I have few doubts regarding that. I want to use WaveWatchIII forecast file to do this.

So can I use TAPR file for each segment of boundary? If so how I can create them automatically? any program or open source tool for this is available ?

I want to run it every day for next 3 days so creating boundary condition in the traditional way with GUI is not an optimal solution for me. It will be very helpful if anyone can suggest anything to automate the process. 

I am new to this Delft3d wave modeling system. So any help will be much appreciated.

Thanking you .
