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.

 Benefits of Agile CoachingKnowing Agile isn’t a big deal; practicing is. It involves loads of challenges. A Coach can help in bringing up the needed Change by offering perspectives and feedback. When Organizations move from where they are towards where they want to go, not everyone is ready, and not everyone wants to. It starts with chaos and proceeds incrementally chaotic without proper help. A Coach can really help in cases where things prevail in this way.You know the organization comprises of people, and people are unique and functional. But when it comes to change, it is hard for people. Even though people know they need to stop eating sugar when they have diabetes, reduce drinking habits when they have heart diseases, they are unable to do it because change is hard. Even in life-threatening situations, people can’t change. So, Organizational transformations are nothing but moving away from the old way of doing things to a new way of doing things. Same change, same old hard, same old problems. Damn!An Agile Coach is a powerful combination of someone who is really an expert in Coaching people and someone who is an expert in practices that enables agility. A powerful combo. A person who can bring change using common sense. Devops Online Training
