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.

ERROR RUNNING DELFT3D - WAVE PROJECT DEVELOPED IN ANDALUCIA - ERROR MESSAGE

Good night partners:

I´ve developed a Project which delf wave standalone. I´ve have introduced this information

timeframe: 10 02 2014 10 00 00 / wáter level : 2.14mts

boundary1 / orientation : east. / conditions along boundary : uniform. / specification of spectra: parametric ( standard values)
wind: 20m/s - 310. (the rest values are standard).

The grid is rectangular, but starting the application this is the result and I haven´t any idea why because I think grid Project and data introduced are good. Could you help me?

I introduce this link with images captures of the area and information given.







Thank you very much emoticon

The link doesn't work for me. Could you attach the mdw file to your message.

I have hung the picture refered to dropbox link. I think it is much better.

I´d appreciate a lot your answers.
