Abstract: This report, the second in a series, describes upgrades of the two-dimensional circulation model CMS-M2D developed under the Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) conducted at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory. The upgrades chiefly concern capability to calculate sediment transport and morphology change at coastal inlets, navigation channels, and adjacent beaches. CMS-M2D is operated as part of the CIRP’s Coastal Modeling System (CMS) that couples calculations of wave transformation, circulation (horizontal currents and water surface elevation), sediment transport, and morphology change. The coupling is interactive and accomplished within a graphical user interface called the Surface-water Modeling System (SMS). Within the SMS, the CMS contains menus and steering modules that allow specification of input and output, as well as the time steps for and degree of interaction among the various processes. The SMS also contains utilities for viewing data and calculation results, monitoring progress of simulations, and running of project level CMS-M2D applications with tidal and surge forcing as provided by a regional circulation model.
