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.

ECO run problem

Padawan Posts: 42 Join Date: 2/7/12 Recent Posts
Hi everyone,

I have been using the ECO module for a while with tag3185. I decided to upgrade to tag 4440. I have compiled it with gcc+mpich twice to be sure.
I have a problem running the ECO compartment. The examples provided all work fine. However when invoking ECO with

exedir=$currentdir/../../bin/lnx/waq/bin
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$exedir:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
procfile=$currentdir/../../bin/lnx/waq/default/proc_def
ecofile=$currentdir/../../bin/lnx/waq/default/bloom.spe

$exedir/delwaq1 $argfile -eco $ecofile -p "$procfile"

I get this error

Number of WARNINGS            :     2
Number of ERRORS during input :     0

Normal end

Delwaq1 did run without errors.

Parallel processing with   1 processor(s)

  SIMULATION STARTED

  INTEGRATION ROUTINE =          22
At line 106 of file blinpu.f (unit = 59, file = 'bloominp.d09')
Fortran runtime error: End of file

Delwaq2 did not run correctly.


I am guessing spmething went wrong with the compilation. Has anyone encountered such an issue?

Thanks

Hi Veli,

Just to be sure, did you update the bloominp.d09 file as well?

Hi Christophe,

I did a complete new subversion download to a different disk. What I have is what was provided with the tag 4440.

It looks like bloominp.d09 is not found. Try copying it from the default folder to your simulation folder. Does that help?

Ok. This is what happened. At each run the model creates "bloominp.*" files at the same directory. They are all empty. So I removed them and copied the original bloominp.d09 from the default directory as you suggested. The simulation started without any issues. For now the results look ok. It will take sometime to finish. I will post back if I encounter any issues.

Guess this solved the trick !!
Thanks a lot Christophe.
