Abstract : This report provides guidance on the use of the Long-Term FATE (LTFATE) computer program and describes its use through an interface available for the personal computer. LTFATE is a site evaluation tool that estimates the dispersion characteristics of a dredged material placement site over long periods of time, ranging from days for storm events to a year or more for ambient conditions. Simulations are based on the use of local wave and current condition input. Local, site-specific hydrodynamic input information is developed from numerical model-generated databases; however, user-supplied data files can be substituted for database-generated files described in this report.
