Research Projects

The project at a Glance

An oil spill trajectory model predicts the movement of spilled oil in and under ice, based on such factors as ocean currents, winds, and air and sea temperatures... more

Key Goals of the Project

The overall objective is to advance and expand the oil and gas industry’s oil spill modelling for oil spills in ice-infested waters... more

Scope of Work

The JIP views an improvement in ice modelling (including the modelling of sea-ice and all types of ice features such as icebergs) as a higher priority than enhancing oil spill trajectory models... more

Key Components of the Project

Four topics have been identified as focus areas... more
