VULNERABILITY MODEL. A SIMULATION SYSTEM FOR ASSESSING DAMAGE RESULTING FROM MARINE SPILLS
The Vulnerability Model (VM) is a computerized simulation system for assessing damage that results from marine spills of hazardous materials; the final report, summarized here, describes the research background, computational techniques, and preliminary test results associated with the first stage of development of the VM. This first stage of model development consisted of the design and implementation of an operational computer simulation, thereby demonstrating the feasibility of the philosophy, concepts, and approaches pertaining to the VM. Certain aspects of the modeling, as now operational, are subject to enhancement by augmentation, increase in precision, or both. Ultimately, the model is is intended to be a comprehensive tool for assessing damage resulting from marine spills.
