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.

How to merge the com-file for PART after parallel computation in Flow

How to merge the com-file for PART after parallel computation in Flow

Hello everyone,I have launched my Flow simulation in parallel on windows and the result of the com-file becomes several ones (com-mdf-001.dat,com-mdf-002.dat ect;) instead of only one in the normal run. Since I will need to couple Flow with Particle tracking, and it seems I can choose only one com-file in PART coupling GUI, I wonder how I may  tackle this issue. Thanks
