Description

During Day 3 "Water quality" of the Delft3D User Days the latest advances in tools used for water quality and ecological modelling are presented. Delft3D water quality and ecology users will demonstrate the potential for analysing challenges in both freshwater and salt water systems around the world. The program offers a mix of lectures and hands-on training, all aimed at demonstrating capabilities and disseminating knowledge on the practical use of the tools and models.

“What is the impact of sand mining on the mussel population in the Wadden Sea?”

“How can we cost-effectively solve water quality issues in agricultural catchments?”

“How can one utilize remote sensing to validate numerical models of primary production?”

These types of questions are those being studied using a variety of models native to the open source Delft3D Suite and related Deltares software products. In some cases these water quality and ecology models rely on input from hydrodynamic or sediment models for information on flow fields or morphology and in others cases they act as stand-alone models.  The use of these integrated models has led to new developments, insights, and understanding for water management. By combining these water quality and ecological processes into other models within the Delft3D environment, the water quality and ecology modules enable investigators to quantify the processes relevant to aquatic ecosystems, and can help identify and explore potential solutions to environmental problems.
