Dataset underlying the study "An earthen sill as a measure to mitigate salt intrusion in estuaries"



The dataset contains the input files of 265 simulations using Delft3D Flexible Mesh (DFM) in which estuaries were designed using a parametric design. Every estuary design was based on thirteen (13) input parameters: three (3) parameters to describe the boundary conditions, and ten (10) for the geomorphological characteristics. The simulations are grouped in seven (7) sets of estuaries based on their focus: (1) height (N=20); (2) lmr (N=26); (3) macro (N=51); (4) micro (N=51); (5) pm (N=51); (6) volume (N=15); and (7) wm (N=51). Model simulations export only the last day of the simulated period, focusing on the quasi-steady state response. Model simulation periods differed per estuary, based on the spin-up period: simulation periods ranged 8-60 days.
