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.

ContractThe coaching contract should continuously be evaluated to check and understand whether it serves the needs. The team should openly discuss things when in doubt. If there are issues about the contract, the team should be courageous enough to express it. It is challenging to identify when the team coaching activity can be called complete.What should I do if I am an internal coach?The process mentioned above to come up with an efficient coaching contract is the same for both the internal and external coaches. The external coach might go for a stringent contract agreement with legalities while an internal coach can document it in a version control tool. The mode of recording the contract could be a
  • MS Word
  • PDF
  • Internal Wiki
  • Confluence
  • Sharepoint, etc.
Keep in mind that it is quintessential to document it and keep updating it so that the revision is visible for future reference. Coaching agile transitions
