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.

The order of quadrants has nothing to do with the order and schedule

The order of quadrants has nothing to do with the order and schedule of test executionIt is a matrix that helps testers to ensure that they have considered all of the different types of tests that are needed to deliver value.On one axis, we divide the matrix into tests that support the team and tests that critique the product. The other axis is divided into business-facing and technology-facing tests. The order of quadrants has nothing to do with the order and schedule of test execution. There are lot many factors that determine when to test, some of them are,
  • Project risk factors
  • The goal of the product
  • Legacy code or a greenfield project
  • Availability of testers to perform the testing
and so on. Devops Online Training
