Abstract: PURPOSE: Theevaluationofalternativeenvironmentalwindows fordredging operations, which represent a broad spectrum of project and site specific conditions (e.g., type of dredge plant, local hydrodynamics, bathymetry, etc.) requires development of a spatially- and temporally-explicit population simulation model. Unless spatial dynamics are accounted for, exploration of spatial and/ortemporalalternativesisimpracticalandisoflimitedeffectiveness(Pelletierand Magal1996). Ultimately, an integrated biophysical and population modeling package is needed that contains coupled population-dynamic, hydrodynamic, fate-and-transport, and bioenergetic models that can be applied in spatially-explicit formats. This Users Guide details a population-dynamic model that provides a quantitative biological foundation for such an integrated modeling package.
