Oil Spills Modelling is a quick modelling system to aid decision-making in emergency situations both in coastal areas (ports, natural areas, islands, etc.) and in the transport of dangerous goods and offshore projects.
This solution involves an operating forecast system with continuous input from:
- A high resolution meteorological model
- A swell model (for offshore and coastal waters)
- A hydrodynamic model (currents)
The outputs issued by the forecasting system feed the additional pollutant dispersion module at sea in order to determine the future evolution of oil spills.
The safety operator only has to enter the location of the spill, the amount spilt and a classification of the type of hydrocarbon spilt, and the system will indicate
the potential effect of the discharge on the surface of the sea and its impact on the coasts.
