GOVERNMENT OIL SPILL MODELING ACTIVITIES

A number of government agencies are presently active in oil modeling. In order to improve communications between these agencies, a workshop was held November 7-9, 1979 at Wallops Island, Virginia. At that time, various government scientists discussed their oil spill modeling activities and the use of these models for their individual agency missions. Further there was a discussion of future modeling needs and goals. During the course of the workshop three areas of concern were defined. First, an outline of the activities of various agencies as related to oil spill modeling was developed. Secondly, the problem areas were identified and future goals set; and finally, the major priorities resulting from the workshop were stated. These areas were considered to be important by the participants and thus will be presented in detail.
