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.

I'm using TELEMAC2d (v6p2) and DELFT3D 4.01.00.ohmw.rc.02
I manage to run delwaq example (RIVIERE AVEC DEUX PILES DE PONT), but with my test case I'm having a problem:

1. I run TELEMAC2d and use res.hyd for DELWAQ as you see in fig1

2.when I try to save the .scn an error appears (see fig2):'error reading file: res-horsurf.dwq' . This file was created when running TELEMAC, so I don't now what may be the problem...

I'm using Blue Kenue and my files are selafin files (big endian) Supervisor Fudaa PrePro.

All the inputs are in the same folder...

I compiled from the source with VS 2010 and intel fortran composer xe 2013, but Telemac was compiled with Intel Fortran xe 2011

I also send you the casNEW.txt and the .hyd file....

The res.hyd comes out with some extra information, so I have to delete all the lines till 'task full-coupling '

Can you please help me on this?

Many thanks
