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.

Dear colleagues,

I am about to start my PhD work and I am planning to use the Delft3D flexible Mesh in 3D mode. In this way, I would like to know if it already supports non-equidistant sigma-layers in vertical direction, or if it is still a “beta” functionality. If it is still a “beta” functionality how can I became a beta user? Do I have access to a pre-release version?

Hye guys! I think that you need to find something cool to fulfill your time. So, I know that this website <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> will be able to satisfy yourself, and only there you could find a lot of different stuff for your work. I hope it would be helpful to you.
