Land van Seaftinge

This example shows the computational grid of a salt marsh area in the Western Scheldt Estuary (the Netherlands). The name of the area is "Land van Saeftinge". The grid is refined to a minimum size of 10 metres in the areas with small size channels, see Figure 1. Also the orientation of the triangles is adjusted to fit the channels into the grid. In this way the water flow of such a complex area can be computed into detail.
