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.

Wave map- export

Hi everybody ,
I made a model with flow , wave and sediments,
However now, when I need to export my results with the QUICKPOT by the wavm-( wave maps) , a message appear and I donĀ“t know how to procede :

here is the message : Catch in d3d_qp\exportdata Attempted to access x(0); index must be a positive integer or logical.
Does anybody knows what this message means, and what am i suppost to do ??

Thank you all,

Hi Ana,

The information you provide is not enough for us to judge. Can you provide more info or the wave map file or the input of wave model, etc?

I've found the same problem when I try to export the results (patches) of my wave model (wavm).
The file is attached. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Hi Mirela,

Thanks for the files! But can you also attach wavm-ces_0416_mare.def as well? Then I can give a try to reproduce the problem.
