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.

Compile 'ERROR while copying...'; LNK1104; LNK1181

Hi,

This will be the first time I've tried to compile something as complex as Delft3D. I am installing it for a personal research promise into tidal energy.
I have made good progress so far and am down to only 12 errors (and 1493 warnings) after trying to build the project in Visual Studio 2019 Preview. Please see my attachment for more information.
It's quite possible that I've missed something from the prerequisites list but if so I'm not sure what or how to tell.
Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Ben
