Project Description

The project uses recently developed models by the PIs along with a coastal circulation model coupled with wave and sediment models to provide a holistic description for the physical behavior of oil from the inner shelf through the surf zone. In particular, an oil particle aggregate model developed by one of the PIs will be integrated with the coastal circulation model within a Lagrangian-Eulerian framework serving to provide estimates of oil particle aggregate formation throughout these zones.
