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.

Hi everyone, I am currently trying to model a strait located in Indonesia, and have used delft dashboard before. It seems to be working just fine a few months ago till  today. Its seems not to be able to create bathymetry data and it keeps on appearing:Error using snc_read_backendCould not determine which backend to use with C:\UsersError in nc_vargetrError in nc_vargetError in ddb_getShorelineError in ddb_updateShorelineError in ddb_uodateDataInScreenError in ddb_zoomInOutPan>StopPanError while evaluating figure WindowButtonUpFcnHow can i get this problem done? Any insights would be appreciatedThank You, Feldy
