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.

Resolutions -Leave it behindI always use driving as a metaphor when you have to look forward in life. You cannot see backward when you have to move forward. Note the things that are always putting you down, emotionally.It could be the mistakes that happened, cheating or backstabbing by family/friends, failures in life, or it could be anything. The thing which reminds these ranges from an object, a song, a place, or even could be the house you stay in.Delete that song, burn that object, and move away from the place that bothers you. You need to look forward and believe in things that you want in life. If there are things that keep reminding past that puts you down, then leave them behind. Drive forward.These are not the only things, but these can help you get started in the new year to achieve the better you. Start working on these three and push yourself from who you are to whom you want to be . <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Coaching agile transitions
