Oil Leak Simulation - EMODnet Sea-Basin Checkpoint Challenge

As part of a stress test on marine data, two days ago teams were asked to assess the impact of simulated oil spills in six European seabasins. All of them managed to deliver assessments of the fate of the oil – dispersed, floating, evaporated, beached etc despite the short notice. Interesting results were the influence of ice in the Arctic, the impact on fishing in the Baltic, the differences in dispersion between the Atlantic and Black Sea and the threat to coastal habitats in the North Sea and Mediterranean. In all cases it is the wind that largely dictates the movement of the slick and the type of oil that dictates the evaporation rate. As in a real spill, the amount of information regarding the fate and trajectory of the oil increases rapidly over the first few days, as more information and resources come into play from the scenario, and information comes back from the field.
