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.

Intelligence is the ability to receive and process informationWhat is intelligence? Intelligence is the ability to receive and process information. Can intelligence be developed? How intelligent were you when you were young? How intelligent are you now? Yes, it can be developed. Intuition can be developed to perfection over a period of time and that's why it is called intuitive intelligence.Not to mention, intuition is highly logical and is purely analytical. How do I know if my intuition is right? You don’t. Do not run behind and spend more time in validating your intuition. It’s just a hunch that you get, use that awareness to your benefit.The brain is a supercomputer of supercomputers and it keeps learning and learning.  Predictions are based on a bunch of formulae but they aren't right from the first. They learn, tweak and change every now and then based on the validation of intuition. The process of letting the intuition out of validation is called blurting. Whenever you have an intuition, you should let it out. If it involves other people, you should ask them if your intuition is correct. Blurting helps you in coming up with correct intuitions. The perfect formulae are created by lots of tweaking. Coach agile transitions
