Project Description

Development and application of system-wide numerical models is indispensable in assessing transport and distribution of oil-derived substances in the Gulf of Mexico. The overall modeling study should include: to develop a three-dimensional model package for the Alabama coastal waters, to validate the model using the data collected by other projects funded by the MESC BP GRI Rapid Response as well as existing data, and to apply the model package to study target processes important for transport and distribution of oil-derived substances.
