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.

Implicit expectations

Implicit expectations are the expectations that the stakeholders have on the leadersImplicit expectations: These are the expectations that the stakeholders have on the leaders. The leaders rarely do understand the impact of these expectations and the effect that it has on their overall effectiveness. Some of them are commitment, engagement, listening, fair treatment, competence, being an inspiration, and so on.One may wonder, why would someone become a leader keeping in mind these expectations. Coming to leadership, it is a responsibility. The responsibility is not straight forward and or affected by the increase in change, complexity, and connectivity. Life is in a complex domain and one cannot predict what may come. Leadership lies in accepting what had happened and working towards making it right. Take an example of the COVID situation, every nation’s leaders are expected to make decisions and things which are right for their people. Both implicit and explicit expectations are there and they will be unrealistic considering the situation at hand.Despite all of the challenges they face, great leaders do love their jobs as leaders. Some may even call that as a calling. Many great leaders see them as challenges than hurdles or blockers. They do operate with more transparency and disclosure as they endure greater scrutiny. The leaders use these chances to influence people, create positive results, and change things. As we have discussed earlier in the article, it’s a responsibility and great leaders do handle these expectations with ease. Coaching agile transitions
