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.

Understand your Purpose

Understand your PurposeFor any venture you start, it is important to know the purpose behind it. “Why am I doing it?” “How would it help?”For me, it never started with becoming a CST. I had seen the benefits of using Scrum in my experiences and was heavily involved in community to spread the benefits of the same. My vision was always to help the people, to share my knowledge and learnings with others so that they too can reap the benefits of Scrum. While working with the community, I realised that there are lots of wrong sources of Scrum mushrooming in the industry and internet, which is causing a lot of harm. That’s when I made up my mind to make sure I can create that visibility and make people aware of the Spirit of Scrum.Once you have identified your purpose to becoming a CST, Commit to it. Don’t look around for shortcuts. Don’t get diverted looking for easier options – “So, what if I cannot become a CST, I will become some other trainer”. That’s not commitment and that would not get you anywhere.  <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Coaching agile transitions

Hi there! I was hesitating about opportunity to get rid of my panic disorder using remote therapy services. To trust and match counselor it took me only three visits. I really appreciate online Self Esteem Therapy platform for an individual approach and beautiful customer support.
