Abstract

Oil spill movement in coastal seas: modelling and numerical simulations' J. F. C. A. Meyer*, R. F. Cantao* & I. R. F. Poffo* *Department of Applied Mathematics, UN 1C AMP - State University at Campinas, Campinas, Brazil Email: joni@ime. unicamp. br, cantao@ime. unicamp. br ^ State Agency for Environmental Technology, CETESB, Sao Paulo, Brazil Email: irisp@cetesb.br Abstract In this paper we will locate our present research results for efforts in Brazil in the realm of oil spill modelling and simulation. In the beginning of the nineties, a project was presented in our University for optimizing resources of clean-up activities following an oil spill. In this global project the mathematical models for numerical simulation should include several phenomena not previously considered in those models then in use by government agencies. The Biomathematics Research Group, of the Applied Mathematics Department then began to work in this direction, using successive variations of so
