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.

Specification by example is also called as living documentationBehavior driven development aka BDD is an efficient way to test the functionality of the product without worrying much on the user interface. Automation is done for the specific feature and its Behavior rather than the complete UI/functional flow. Automating everything up front helps in saving time for other types of testing like exploratory testing and non-functional testing. BDD helps you eliminating more documents related to testing, even test cases. Specification by example is also called as living documentation because the examples and automation code are glued together. Updating the examples with behavioural changes needs changes in automation code as well. So, at any point of time, the key examples and the automation code will always be in sync and hence living documentation.Test QuadrantsThere are variety of testing types available and there is more non-functional testing to be done. As much as quality should be ingrained on to the product, all these testing needs to be done in a very limited timeframe. The Agile test quadrant explains what type of testing is technical, functional, helps team, helps business, when to do what, which type of testing should be automated, which type of testing should be done manually, which type of testing uses tools etc.  Devops Online Training
