A summary of the results from three work units 1B06, 1B07, and 1B09 of the Dredged Material Research Program, concerned with predicting and monitoring dredged material movement, is presented. Work Units 1B06 and 1B09 were concerned with the prediction of the short-term fate of dredged material discharged in open water. In particular, 1B06 was an evaluation and calibration of the Tetra Tech disposal models developed under Work Unit 1B02 of the DMRP by Tetra Tech, Inc. using field data collected at several disposal sites, including the Duwamish, New York Bight, and Lake Ontario sites. The collection of these field data was performed under Work Unit 1 B09 by Yale University. Work Unit 1B07 involved an evaluation of two two-dimensional finite element models developed under Work Unit 1B05 of the DMRP by the University of California at Davis for the long-term prediction of sediment transport in estuaries.
