Abstract : PURPOSE: The United States Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) developed the aquatic contaminant simulation module (CSM). The overall purpose of the CSM is to provide a plug in contaminant simulation module for existing hydrologic and hydraulic (H and H) models. The CSM computes internal source and sinks for a wide range of contaminants for both water column and underlying sediment layer. Likewise, it was written as a dynamic link library (DLL) and compiled as CSM.dll. The CSM is independent of the dimensionality of the spatial domain and has general applicability to aquatic systems. In addition, it has been integrated into the Hydrologic Engineering Center-River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) (HEC 2010a, b) and Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) (Arnold et al. 1998, Neitsch et al. 2011). It will also be integrated into ERDC's Adaptive Hydraulics (AdH) model (Berger et al. 2012).
