Abstract: PURPOSE: This Dredging Operations and Engineering Research (DOER) Technical Note (TN) is the second in a series. It describes the features and capabilities of a new Particle Tracking Model (PTM) for analysis of sediment transport and sediment pathways in coastal waters, estuaries, rivers, and waterways. This note is applicable to Version 1.0 of PTM. The PTM graphical user interface is described in the first TN (Demirbilek et al. 2005a) in this series. A tutorial with examples is described in the third TN (Demirbilek et al. 2005b). PTM has been designed to meet the needs of two U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) research programs, the Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) and the DOER Program. Examples are presented that illustrate key features of the PTM’s application in coastal and estuarine environments.
