|Description:||Dredging Operations and Environmental Research Technical Note|
Purpose: This document describes new analysis methods and tools added to the Surface Water Modeling System (SMS) to facilitate interpreting, understanding and applying the output from the Particle Tracking Model (PTM) in project applications. These tools convert the Lagrangian pathways to Eulerian datasets at specific locations. This Technical Note describes the new tools and associated analysis methods used to perform these conversions, while the Part 2 companion Technical Note (Demirbilek et al. 2012) provides an example application to demonstrate the use of these tools to determine the fate of sediment resuspended during a dredging operation and deposition and suspended sediment concentration in environmentally sensitive areas.
