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.

Delwaq results as time-series per layer

Delwaq results as time-series per layer

Hi, why in a 3D-model using Delwaq, it is not possible to see time-series for each layer using d3d_qp in Matlab? however using the map-file (.ada-file) it is possible to see results layer per layer in map. Should I activate some options in Input file to see the time-series  layer per layer? or it has not been programmed for Delwaq to see time-series of results layer per layer? If it is not possible, what type of averaging has been implemented for the single time-series for all layers. Using .hda-file, I get only one time-series for all layers!
