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.

Understanding Clients-AgilityIf you get hired as a Scrum Master or an Agile Coach for your team, you can start straight away. If you are an external coach for your organization, then identifying who is your coachee and the problems they face is essential at the initial phase. Identifying the type of clients is crucial to the contracting process.Primary Client:  The person or the team or the business unit which needs coaching. The contract made for the primary client alone as they are the ones who will receive the coaching. They are responsible for seeking help and cannot delegate that responsibility. The leader could be part of the team or maybe not.Intermediate Client: This client will involve in the early part of the contract. The intermediate client could be the leader of the team, supervisors, managers, directors, vertical heads, Vice Presidents, or even executives.Contact Client: This client usually makes the initial contact. They could be an administrative assistant to the team, a member of human resources, or a secretary to the Intermediate Client.Ultimate Client: This client may not be in direct contact but benefits indirectly. They could be the organization as a whole, customers, investors, and other stakeholders. Coaching agile transitions
