Abstract : This Technical Note (ERDC TN-DOER-D15) introduces four new data analysis tools developed for the Particle Tracking Model (PTM) and their graphical implementation in the SMS interface. These tools allow users to calculate data sets on a grid, extend data to three dimensions using z-bins, examine vertical distribution by using the fence diagrams, and place virtual gauges at environmentally sensitive locations to calculate particle count, accumulation, rate of accumulation, deposition, concentration, exposure and dosage over a user-specified focus time.
