Abstract

The goal is to accurately predict the fate of hydrocarbons (oil) released into the environment, thereby guiding risk management and response efforts to minimize damage to human health, the economy and the environment. This goal will be achieved through: interconnection of a number of state-of-the-art hydrodynamic models across a vast range of spatial and temporal scales of motions caused by different physical processes; a dedicated set of in-situ and laboratory experiments designed for model evaluation and parameterization; uncertainty analysis to assess model performance and solution space.
