This manual describes the operation and use of a computer model developed to predict the physical fate of dredged material instantaneously released into the water column. The model predicts the spacial distribution of various components of the dumped material as a function of time. Output includes material concentration and position while in the water column and material mound height and concentration after bottom impact. Included in this report are a description of the model's structure and a complete explanation of its input/output formats. In addition, the model has been run for a matrix of input conditions. Both the input and output of these runs are presented as tables in dimensionless form. These working tables can be used to approximate the fate of dredged material without requiring the user to actually run the model. Several examples showing how these tables can be used are also given.
