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.

NEFIS files are bad, warnings in compilation

NEFIS files are bad, warnings in compilation

Dear all, 
A few days ago I posted a request for help because I was not getting GPP to work. After checking and checking I realized the problem is not GPP, but something related to the flow simulation. I can generate mdf files and process the simulation without giving errors. I believe the problem is in the generation of the map, drogue, and history files. Therefore, the problem is the generation of the NEFIS files.
Then I compiled everything again, and I get 0 errors, but 130 warnings. Several are of the type MSBuild. I read I have to disable this in VS 2015. But I cannot find the way to do that.  
Question 1. Am I right about this diagnostics?
Question 2. How can I disable or uninstall MSBuild from VS 2015?
Question 3. Any other suggestions?
Thanks for any help

Hi Jorge,
Have you tried to run examples from the 'examples' folder after having compiled D3D executables? If they run smoothly, try to use QUICKPLOT instead of GPP to inspect the results. If needed, see Quickplot user manual. In case you have problems with generating NEFIS files, you can store simulation results in the NetCDF-files. Have a look at the section A.1.4 of FLOW user manual for the detailes.

Thank you a lot Dmitry. I skept the examples, my bad. I tried a couple of them and they worked fine. I opened the history files with quickplot and everything shows right. So, I don't know, a problem with GPP I believe. Important thing is that the model is working. Cheers
