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.

Anxiety & Learning

AnxietyAnxiety is an intellect killer. It subsides the mental performance of any human being. Constant worrying of any kind eventually leads to anxious behavior. In a complex environment where people have to develop products to solve customer problems, it's not easy to think when they are constantly put in pressureLearningIf the situation that demands attention is repetitive, people consider it so boring. Same time, if the situation is beyond challenging, people fall in to anxiety. It's a trap. The right amount of everything is what keep people going. It should have the right amount of balance in challenge so that it leads to learning. Is the environment right for learning?  Coaching agile transitions
