Project Description

The objective is to create a community earth modeling framework that knits together all useful numerical models for tracking the transport and fate of oil, oil residues, and oil-contaminated materials and their subsequent effects on the northern Gulf of Mexico ecosystem, with consistent input and output data standards, common verification/validation standards, conserving solutions across multiple models domains with varying scales, and consistent expectations for model ability and limitations.
