Topic: Using custom oil spill modeling geographic information systems (GIS) to aid with oil spill planning and response.
When oil is spilled, a primary concern is where oil will go. Responders need robust GIS-based tools to integrate relevant information to support the decision-making process. RPS has developed marine response tools such as OILMAP, our comprehensive 3D oil spill modelingsystemwhich provides rapid predictions of the movement of oil.
To enhance oil spill planning and response we have integrated the OILMAP model into our web-based GIS system known as OceansMap. The web-interface allows users to run oil spill trajectory models alongside a variety of data including met-ocean data, remote sensing data, operational models and in-situ observation data.
OceansMap integrates remote sensing satellite data to locate potential surface oil slicks; this information is in turn used to initialize a trajectory model in OILMAP to aid rapid response. OceansMap also integrate overflight information to update the trajectory during an ongoing incident.
