intro story Lake


Lakes and reservoirs are important resources for communities around the globe. They provide food, drinking and irrigation water and can also offer spots for recreation. Under certain conditions lakes can also represent a threat for local communities, such as flooding or limnic eruptions. The ecological state of shallow lakes may be hampered by suspended sediments due to wind driven currents and waves. In deep lakes, stratification can cause undesirable anoxic conditions in the deeper areas. Understanding these systems is crucial to enable a sound management of these water bodies.

Delft3D is the state-of-the-art modelling framework for hydrodynamics, water quality, ecology, waves and morphology.
Here, in this space, we share knowledge & experiences, and discuss issues related to modelling of lakes.

Build Error

Dear All,


I am getting errors when I build the solution using MSVS2017 and IFORT18. I am attaching a snapshot of the error messages with this thread. Can someone help me resolve this? I did execute the python file '' to compile the source code. Following that, it displays the message ready to use the 'nefis.sln' file. However, the instructions given in the 'README' file point towards building the solution using 'delft3d_open.sln' and 'dflowfm_open.sln' file. My question is should I build the nefis file initially before moving on towards the two files? 

 Thank You.
