The objective of this study was to determine probable trajectories of oil slicks from prospective exploration drilling sites in the Davis Strait. Shell's simulator program, SLIKTRAK, was selected to simulate spill movements in Davis Strait because of its relative ease of use and its ability to stimulate the fate of an oil spill including evaporation and natural dispersion effects...Although improvements in the precision of the environmental data can be expected in the future, no substantial change in the results presented herein are expected unless there are drastic changes in input data.
