PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes procedures to calculate salinity change within the Coastal Modeling System (CMS) operated in the Surface-water Modeling System (SMS), version 11.0. The CMS is a two-dimensional (2-D) hydrodynamic and sediment transport model designed for coastal and inlet applications, and the SMS is a graphical user interface utility for PCs as developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). For calculating salinity with the 2-D CMS, the project area must be well-mixed in the vertical dimension. The procedure and the CMS verification are illustrated by the salinity modeling in Matagorda Bay, Texas.
