University of South Florida
Ocean circulation modeling groups from University of South Florida, Florida State University and University of Miami are teaming to provide oil spill trajectory modeling in support of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill crisis. Our starting point consists of an ensemble of six different state of the art models that we have used, either individually or collectively, since the onset of this crisis. With our work presently used in the NOAA Hazmat daily surface oil spill trajectory advisories, the impact and relevance to the gulf oil crisis are clearly demonstrated.
