PREDICTED OIL SLICK MOVEMENT FROM VARIOUS LOCATIONS OFF THE NEW JERSEY-DELAWARE COASTLINE

Projections of the movement of oil slicks and their impact location along the shoreline of New Jersey and Delaware were determined from three potential deepwater port sites and three potential oil drilling sites. Average monthly wind speeds and directions and average monthly current patterns were used for predicting the oil slick movement. Probable areas of impact along the shoreline were indicated. (Author)
