Subscribers to RPS OILMAP Slick Service receive daily forecasts of hypothetical, marine oil spill trajectories. These trajectories are assumed to start at the subscriber’s coastal or marine assets (e.g. platforms, pipelines). If a slick is detected, subscribers can use these predictions to help determine if the slick originated from their assets or some other source. They also provide responders with an immediate forecast in the event of a spill. This system is based on RPS OILMAP software suite and Environmental Data Services (EDS). EDS delivers various metocean data sources to OILMAP, resulting in accurate and timely predictions. All predictions are streamlined directly to subscribers’ response tools and/or data portals.
Depending on the area of interest, multiple wind and current data sources may be available (both modeled and empirical). RPS Environmental Data Services (EDS) delivers an appropriate blend of available metocean data to the automated spill modeling system. Such public sources might include:
Client-provided sources (e.g. ADCP data from private buoys) can also be incorporate as well.
The system automatically collects real-time metocean data (e.g. from buoys, met towers, current meters, global models) and/or forecasts in the area of interest.
The system automatically runs the spill trajectory model and regularly updates the subscriber with maps, GIS files, and reports. Outputs can be customized for each subscriber (e.g. locations where oil from a blowout first reaches the water surface).
