Director of Natural Systems Modeling & Monitoring
The Water Institute of the Gulf, USA
In his Keynote Lecture at the Delft3D User Meeting on Wednesday, November 4, Dr. Meselhe will describe what he has learned about coastal wetland, estuarine, and riverine systems from Delft3D modeling studies. He will talk about the latest open source advances and will share his ideas for further improvements.
This Keynote will be the start of an open discussion among coastal & river engineers, hydrologists, hydro-morphodynamic & water quality experts, ecologists, and software developers to further collaborate in the development and research of the future of computer modeling of coastal wetland, estuarine, and riverine systems.
