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.

Visibility  issues. Visibility issues: When you don’t know what’s happening on the other side of the ocean, the collaboration may get impacted. The teams may not be able to work as effectively as they could be. Many a time, the team doesn't know what the other one is working on. What can you do to address visibility issues?
  • You may have to make use of a digital backlog management tool or a collaboration tool. A simple tool is always better. Some examples could be JIRA, leanGears, Startup Planner, Rally, Version One, etc. Choose your tool wisely.
  • If you are building software, practices like continuous integration create better visibility into technical work. Coaching agile transitions
