A systematic methodology is described for estimating the longterm response of a dredged material site to local environmental forcings. The methodology is based on the development of useraccessible data bases of wave and current time series and the subsequent application of these boundary conditions to coupled hydrodynamic, sediment transport, and bathymetry change models. The approach was developed to provide an estimate of long-term material fate for use in determining whether an existing or… CONTINUE READING
