The Advanced modality represents the most complex level of the MI-SAFE tool. This modality provides full support of specialists and allows the use of recent EO-derived information and of an adapted XBeach model setup to produce a tailor-made evaluation of the impact of foreshores on water level and wave heights at a location selected by the user. Your tailor-made model setup can be created with Delft Dashboard. See below two instruction videos of how to use Delft Dashboard to assess the effect of vegetation on your foreshore!

Create a XBeach model

This example shows how Delft Dashboard can be used to set up in a few minutes a tidal simulation using a two-level nesting approach. The model includes a coarser model for Southern California, in which an already existing high resolution model for San Diego bay is nested. 

 

Vegetate your model

This example shows how Delft Dashboard can be used to vegetate an existing XBeach model based on the yes/no vegetation map from FAST.
