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.

Explicit expectations & Implicit expectations

Explicit expectations & Implicit expectationsExplicit expectations: Leaders themselves express certain outcomes based on their role and job description. It could be something like strategy, execution, fiscal responsibility, and so on.Implicit expectations: These are the expectations that the stakeholders have on the leaders. The leaders rarely do understand the impact of these expectations and the effect that it has on their overall effectiveness. Some of them are commitment, engagement, listening, fair treatment, competence, being an inspiration, and so on.Leaders are assessed based on both implicit and explicit expectations. Even though the expectations at times are unrealistic, the leaders are expected to fulfill these expectations by the stakeholders and the followers. The majority of the time, these expectations are unrealistic. Because of their unrealistic nature, the leaders feel that they are set up to fail to lead to the failed efforts of fulfilling their promises. Leaders do succeed with the clarity and the expectations of their role. Organizations do succeed depending on their leaders fulfilling their promises on leadership. Coaching agile transitions
