Implementation of Dredging Risk Assessment Modeling Applications for Evaluation of the No-Action Scenario and Dredging Impacts
ENGINEER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTER VICKSBURG MS
Pagination or Media Count:
This technical note describes the development of Dredging Risk Assessment Modeling Applications DRAMA for evaluation of the no-action scenario and the impacts of dredging operations without consideration of disposal. Implementation templates for these scenarios use existing dredging models to characterize exposure for the evaluation of potential human health and ecological risk. The models selected have been incorporated into the Framework for Risk Analysis in Multimedia Environmental Systems FRAMES, a part of the Army Risk Assessment Modeling System ARAMS.
