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.

What happens to Testers ?

What happens to Testers ?People who write code are called programmers and not developers. Developers are responsible for not just programming but testing, build & release, technical writing, and other activities that involve developing a product. Tester's role fit perfectly to be part of the development team. The development team in Scrum is responsible for developing the product by working closely with the Product Owner.Coaching agile transitionsAs per the testing quadrants, the testers are responsible for technology-facing tests that support team & critique the product and business-facing tests that help the team & critiques the product. Coaching agile transitions
