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.

Scope change in Sprint

Scope change in SprintChange is inevitable and scope changes can crawl in at any point of time. It may happen because of lot many reasons like change in market dynamics, change in the need of customers, wrong understanding of specs, Speculations from Product owner and so on. Understand the need before accepting or rejecting the scope change.Check with your product owner on what’s the priority of the change and what’s the cost of delay for the change if it is not hitting the market soon. Depends on the priority of the incoming scope change, decide whether it can be addressed in the current sprint by making some change to the committed PBIs or by cancelling the current sprint to change the sprint for working on new scope. Coaching agile transitions
