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.

Business AnalystA Business Analyst is a person with appropriate skills to perform Business Analysis. Business Analysts are responsible for: • understanding enterprise problems and goals, • analyzing needs and solutions, • devising strategies, • driving solution development, and • facilitating stakeholder engagement and collaboration.Change is defined as the act of transformation in response to a need. Need is a problem or opportunity to be addressed. A solution is a specific way of satisfying one or more needs in a context. Value is the worth, importance, or usefulness of something to a stakeholder within a context.In simple words, Business Analysis is creatively solving user’s problems through solutions that generate value for all stakeholders (users as well as the organization building the solution). Business Analysis the process of uncovering the current state from different perspectives( customers, users, and organization) and determine activities required to evolve towards the future state.A Business Analyst should have the following skills to be an effective one: • Creative Thinking, • Decision Making, • Problem Solving, • Systems Thinking, • Business Acumen, and • Facilitation <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Coaching agile transitions
