Chemical and oil spill models designed for emergency response, contingency planning, and for risk analysis in lakes, rivers, and coastal waters are valuable tools which help to elimate much of the guess work involved in the tracking and recovery of spilled commodities.

SPILLSIM is a chemical and oil spill trajectory and fate model for the PC. Along with supporting databases for commodity properties, currents, temperatures and winds, the model is run through a simple to use graphical interface providing extensive control over input data creation and editing, database access, and viewing/printing of output data.

The spill model incorporates such factors as:

  • Transport by currents
  • Diffusion
  • Surface spreading
  • Evaporation
  • Vertical dispersion
  • Emulsification

Also included:

  • Volume losses to shoreline cells
  • Volume fluxes through open boundaries
