Abstract:

The paper describes a decision support system proposed to aid short-term scheduling of maintenance dredging activities on the lower Mississippi River for the New Orleans District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The system is designed to coordinate and quickly assemble a wide variety of information sources and models relevant to the dredge scheduling decision. The support system would also provide summary measures of costs and benefits for proposed dredge depolyments.
