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.

What is so important about Employee Wellness and Welfare

What is so important about Employee Wellness and WelfareAgile transformation, business transformation, digital transformation and there are many more transformations that Organizations go through to achieve maximum ROI in a short period. Can you name any organizational transformation which doesn't involve people? It is impossible. Any organization which does not happen to keep their employees into account during their transformation usually fails. Employees stand at the forefront of any transformation and their wellness and welfare decide the success of the transformation.Organizations may say that they usually take care of their employee wellness and welfare. But, they usually talk about the bonus, health insurance, salary increments and such. We live in an era of knowledge workers and mind plays an important role in this. I am discussing the mental wellness and welfare of people in the Organization. What as leaders in the Organization have done for their employee's mental wellness? It's a question that doesn't have answers most of the time. Only a handful of Organizations do take care of such things. Human resources in every Organization have to take care of this, but do they?  Devops Online Training
