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.

  Planning is a vital part of starting the sprint

 Planning is a vital part of starting the sprintThere are so many questions when we try to do a Sprint Planning. Some of them could be,
  • How much work can the team do within a sprint?
  • How to decide the amount of work to be done?
  • If we do not have velocity, how to plan for the first sprint?
  • How many Sprints do we plan at a time?
So many questions arise and it is quite confusing on how to start when we do not have any data upfront.Planning is a vital part of starting the sprint. It clarifies the part on what is expected out of this sprint through a Sprint Goal and also a plan in the form of Sprint Backlog.Sprint Goal helps us understand the purpose and Sprint Backlog guides us on how to achieve the goal.  Coaching agile transitions
