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.

Anxiety also reduces new learning activities

Anxiety also reduces new learning activitiesManagement needs to understand that knowledge workers are not laborers and treating them as such makes them as such. Presenting them with constant anxiety also reduces new learning activities and will result in a further decline of cognitive abilities. It further drives down people towards negative thinking. Negative thinking is another serious concern in employee wellness. This eventually leads them to hate their job, their company and even themselves. Negative thinking also leads to the destruction of the immune system in the body. Anxious people, will fall slowly into negative thinking and then into depression.A study suggests that an estimated 65% of people are depressed in India alone. This is mainly due to untrained supervisors, unskilled people managers and a human resource department who are not doing their job. Many people falsely understand Human resources as hire and fire team. They are supposed to take care of complete employee wellness which is not limited to salary and allowances. Transparency, Equality, respect and openness should be present.
  • One best thing to reduce constant anxiety in workplace is to create transparency about everything that happens in the Organziation (management).
  • Sharing information only to a specific group of Individuals in the Organization should not be encouraged.
  • Every information about everything should be made available for all people in the Organization.
I have personally seen in most cases that if someone attends interview, the results are not even shared. It creates certain level of anxiety for the person who attended the interview. Making them wait longer for the results creates more surge in their intellectual abilities. Rather than spending their thoughts wisely, they tend to battle imaginary situations regarding the results. These are some of the day to day things that happens in Organizations that leads to anxiety. It is wise to watch out for patterns that leads to anxiousness. Coaching agile transitions
