Numerical Modelling of Oil Spill

  title={Numerical Modelling of Oil Spill},
  author={Asu Đnan and Lale Balas},
Oil tanker accidents in seas cause serious problems to marine environment, especially when these accidents occur close to coastlines. To minimize the impact of tanker accidents on marine environment some measures might be taken if oil slick movement could be predicted in advance. Oil spill trajectory and fate models have been developed since the early 1960’s to simulate oil movement on the water surface in order to take immediate action and some necessary measures after such accidents…

An oil spill trajectory model: validation in the Mediterranean Sea

The aim of this work is to develop a model to simulate the oil spill trajectories on the sea and to provide a useful tool for decision makers who have to manage oil spill emergency.

The 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill: a modeling study

This study modeled the oil spill of April 22 to May 8, 2010, in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The model reproduced the hydrodynamics, waves, weather conditions, and oil spill. In the hydrodynamic
