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.

Subconscious mind is responsible for the habits

Subconscious mind is responsible for the habitsIf subconscious mind is responsible for the habits I have, how will I change a habit? If you are planning to start a tremendous change suddenly and drastically, then it might be difficult to implement. If you succeed in implementing it, you will not be able to sustain the change. That’s because your routine is different and your conscious is struggling to make sense of it. How to do it then? Start small. One good thing I have learned over the period is to switch to trivial things whenever you are going to perform something from your routine. I know its still confusing and so I will explain with an example.First, identify one habit which you want to change. Put that to test and see if its nagging you, driving you, not letting you sleep etc. for changing that. It should drive you to get rid of it and you should be self-motivated. Else, you will be wasting time doing something which is not needed for you. Let’s take an example where you want to quit smoking. Instead of smoking, when you have the urge, what do you want to do?Let’s say you want to walk till the pantry, fetch a bottle of water, walk and little around the cabin and come back to your seat. Start the small activity instead of the regular habit. You may ask, what will I do in home. Choose what do you want to do when you have the same urge in home and continue doing that. Slowly make that as a routine and your subconscious makes a note of it. Piece of cake, isn’t it? Coaching agile transitions
