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.

Micropollutant modelling

Micropollutant modelling


I am planning to study micropollutant (PPCPs) modelling that are residue in the river water . I would like to ask whether this substance can be found in DELWAQ?

Anybody can help me?

Thank you in advance =)

Hi Zulhafizal,

The list of available organic micro polutants can be found in section 9.1 of the Technical Reference Manual.
In this list you will find a substance with id OMP, which is a generic omp which you can configure to have the desired properties.

If this turns out to be unsufficient to meet your needs, extending the library is very encouraged and we'll be glad to help you with this.

Dear Christophe,

Thank you for your prompt reply.. Really appreciate it.. I'll look into that manual..

Thanks once again..
