OILMAP provides rapid predictions of the movement of spilled
oil. It includes simple graphical procedures for entering both wind and
hydrodynamic data and specifying the spill scenario. To see an animated

of surface oil movement, identification of shoreline impacts, graphical and tabular
listings of weathering mass balance results, and display of GIS resources impacted
by the spill.
Model (for Risk Assessment and Oil Spill Contingency Planning)
- Determine most likely spill
paths for spills on a monthly, seasonal, or annual basis.
Probabilities of oiling the water surface and shorelines in the vicinity of the
spill site, and contours of oil travel time.
Model (for Oil Vulnerability Analysis)
vulnerability of a particular site (e.g. Desalination Plant) to oil spills based
on lightering sites or tanker traffic routes.
possible sources of oil when oil has been observed at a particular site
Search and Rescue
an envelope of likely search areas of an object or accident site based on drift
of drift behavior for a variety of objects is provided based on US Coast Guard
- Predicts the subsurface
transport of entrained and dissolved oil
