Short Course on Computer-Assisted Oil Spill Environmental Assessments in Land and Water Wessex Institute of Technology
The huge volume of hydrocarbons transported through pipelines and by ships poses a continuous risk to the environment due to accidental spills. Understanding the processes determining oil trajectory and fate, and learning oil spill simulation tools, allows environmental professionals to design better response plans, and help with mitigating future events.
This course provides insight into the main processes that govern overland and water oil spills and offers practical training to perform oil spill simulations using the OilFlow2D computational model. The course offers hands-on experience in setting up and running a variety of scenarios including pipeline spills hitting sensitive areas and spills in sea and riverine environments, allowing us to determine where the oil will go, given the spill location and volume.
