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.

Error running DELFT3D-WAQ

I receive the following error when I run the delwaq example: "Delwaq1 did not run correctly, ending calculation". There's an error finding some parameters (I've attached the LSP and LST files). I used Visual Studio Professional 2017, NET Framwork 4.8, and Intel Parallel Studio XE 2019 Cluster Edition to compile the trunk version. It was compiled without errors, but there were a few warnings. One of the warnings was copying the .dll delwaq file. 
The following message is from the LST file:
