intro story DELWAQ

DELWAQ

DELWAQ is the engine of the D-Water Quality and D-Ecology programmes of the Delft3D suite. It is based on a rich library from which relevant substances and processes can be selected to quickly put water and sediment quality models together.

The processes library covers many aspects of water quality and ecology, from basic tracers, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, organic matter, inorganic suspended matter, heavy metals, bacteria and organic micro-pollutants, to complex algae and macrophyte dynamics. High performance solvers enable the simulation of long periods, often required to capture the full cycles of the processes being modelled.

The finite volume approach underlying DELWAQ allows it to be coupled to both the structured grid hydrodynamics of the current Delft3D-FLOW engine and the upcoming D-Flow Flexible Mesh engine (1D-2D-3D) of the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite (or even other models such as TELEMAC).

'DELWAQ in open source' is our invitation to all leading experts to collaborate in further development and research in the field of water quality, ecology and morphology using Delft3D. Feel free to post your DELWAQ related questions or comments in this dedicated forum space. If you are new to DELWAQ, the tutorial (in the user manual) is a good place to start. A list of DELWAQ related publications is available here.

TIDE analysis

I have ADCP data with an inconsistent time step ............. not sure why! I would like to do an harmonic analysis on it in Delft3D-TIDE, but this requires the time step to be uniform. Sorting this manually would be a lot of work, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Phil,

You can interpolate the data using a Matlab function called interp1.

Regards,
Renan

Hi Phil and Renan,

I know you said MATLAB is not available to you.
But, since this post can be consulted in the future regarding TIDE analyses, I just wanted to throw in my two cents.

There is a very nice MATLAB function called U_Tide.
you can download it from: http://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/operations/sea-mat/
This function enables tide analyses with non-uniform time steps.

Can come in handy in a lot of cases.

Unfortunately, I don't know of an option outside of MATLAB =(

Good luck!

Can any one let me know hot date is handled for cases of post 2000 scenario.
what i've seen in manual is yymmdd format. i'm bit confused over here.

also is it possible to run this program in batch mode, as like muppet with session file (input control).
This is necessary as i'm working with a large data set at different locations.
