This report constitutes the first in a three-report series and develops the methodology for obtaining a numerical solution to the transport equation. The development of the vertically integrated hydrodynamic and transport equations is presented in order to point out the assumptions made in a two-dimensional approach. A review of current finite difference approximation techniques is presented. Based upon this review the spread time derivative and flux-corrected transport algorithms were selected for numerical implementation Report 2 and testing Report 3. The algorithm developed is to be included within the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station Implicit Flooding Model WIFM. The model will be used to predict changes in salinity distributions due to alternative dredge disposal practices in Mississippi Sound and adjacent areas.
