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.

Flexible contracts are also known as Minimal Viable ContractsContracts are required to have better collaboration between customers and suppliers. On traditional contracts, the focus is on activities carried out by supplier and delivery of features but the focus should be on the real value which should bring more business.If your contract impedes your collaboration, contracts should be changed. Flexible contracts really help in solving the traditional approach where the focus is on the outcome and business objective is the key.In traditional contracts, there are long discussions which go quiet back and forth with a lengthy process and adds Cost of delay. Flexible contracts really help in solving the traditional approach by delivering value quickly.They are also known as Minimal Viable Contracts which has very less information in-built but different modules can be added to current conditions of the product/project/services.  A flexible contract blends TnM (time and material) with the outcome delivered. It really helps supplier to reach an outcome as quickly as possible and also ensures customer on their business needs. Coaching agile transitions
