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.

Delft Dashboard server status

Hi all,

Apologies for creating another thread about this but the problem seems to have extended. A couple days ago Delft Dashboard stopped being able to access the Tide Database (models such as TPXO and European Shelf became unavailable). Now several servers for .xml files cannot be accessed e.g. tidestations.xml. Attached is the errors received in the command window upon startup.

Can anyone verify that this is not a local problem at my end but an issue at OPeNDAP/Deltares? 

Many thanks, Christian

For anyone interested/following, having contacted Deltares OPeNDAP's server is down. Deltares have only just become aware of this situation and are resolving it.

Hi Christian,

I am having the same errors now. I downloaded the latest Delft Dashboard version and the Matlab Runtime Compiler as well.

However today (03/18/2021), I accessed the Tide Database models and found the same errors. Can you access it today as well?

Your help would be very much appreciated.
