Technical Information Sheet - 3D Oil Spill Modelling in OSCAR

The three dimensional (3D) Oil Spill Contingency And Response (OSCAR) model allows for subsea plume modelling. By combining the outputs of multiple oil spill trajectories, simulating temporally varying wind and current conditions, OSCAR produces statistical (stochastic) outputs from which worst case scenarios can be identified and planned for.
