Abstract:

The Particle Tracking Model PTM is a Lagrangian model designed to evaluate the behavior of water-borne constituents, such as sediment, chemicals, debris, or biota, under the combined effect of currents and waves. The Coastal Inlets Research Program CIRP supports the PTM with the Coastal Modeling System CMS, which provides coupled wave and current forcing for PTM simulations. CMS-PTM is implemented in the Surface-water Modeling System, a GUI environment for input development, model execution, data pre- and postprocessing, and visualization.
