PERFORMANCE AND COMPATIBILITY ANALYSIS OF FOUR OIL-SPILL FATE COMPUTER MODELS

Computer models that simulate the transport and fate of spilled oil are important tools in environmental assessment. The integrated model presented here is constructed from four codes addressing ocean circulation and oil spill trajectories, oil weathering, oil/suspended particulate matter interaction, and oil spill fates in the coastal zone. The model is the cornerstone of a system of models that yield an oil spill cleanup plan.
