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.

Obtaining water levels/elevation in QUICKPLOT

Hello, I need to obtain water level/elevation output from QUICKPLOT. Is there a way to do so? I don't see it as an option in the drop down list. I've gathered that I may be able to use GPP to do so, but was hoping to obtain it through QUICKPLOT, as I am not familiar with using GPP.

Hi Audrey, using D3D Matlab-Toolbox you are able to load all of computed variables. You can find the Toolbox by OpenEarth or in trunk of Delft-Website:
