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.

Turbidity current in lake

Can I use delft3d for 3d simulating turbidity current in dam reservoir?
if the sedimentation mechanism of ocean delata region like dam reservoir delta region? The dam reservoir delta region mechanism is settling coarse sediments on river and not entering to reservoir and fine sediments entering to reservoir and forming turbidity current. I want to know when the river containing sediment ended to ocean are sedimentation same as dam reservoir?
thank you for reading and replying
