The ONR Technical Report presents a sequence of computer programs that have been developed as part of a continuing program to apply computer simulation techniques to shallow-water marine sedimentation. Most of the programs are relatively short, and may be regarded as modules for representing specific processes. The modules are not generally useful by themselves for realistic simulation of geologic processes, but instead, are intended for ultimate use as components in larger simulation applications. In many respects, the programs may be regarded as pedagogical models that illustrate a particular mathematical tool applied in a sedimentation context. Hopefully, these program modules will be a step toward providing a generalized base on which other persons who wish to use simulation techniques can build. Author
