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.

Working with your team members that collaboration plays a significant roleIt is very much important when you are working with your team members that collaboration plays a significant role. The era of lone wolves is over, and it is all about the pack, the team. One needs to find different ways and means to collaborate in terms of better ways to work together. Better collaboration brings better teamwork. Working together in the workplace is different from working from home. There will be challenges, yes. As long as you are in this together as a team, a lot can be achieved.Also, you need to collaborate with your family members. What if your spouse and siblings are also working? Spend time with your families and understand that they also have to improve their efficiency. Someone needs to take care of kids, households, etc. Share some efforts and ease the tension of your partner and team at home as well. Devops Online Training
