Oil spill response and follow up studies

Particles trajectories:hourly input at the Deepwater Horizon loation


Particle trajectories are simulated using the HYCOM-Lagrangian particle package developed at the University of Miami (Dr. George Halliwell ; ghalliwell@rsmas.miami.edu). Coupling of the HYCOM-Lagrangian to the real-time GoM-HYCOM simulation provides probabilistic nowcast/forecast of particle trajectories at the surface as well as in subsurface.

 

This illustrates the dominant circulation and IS NOT AN OIL SPILL PREDICTION.
