Description: Special Report
Abstract: The growing concern over the impacts of oil spills on aquatic environments has led to the development of many computer models for simulating the transport and spreading of oil slicks in surface water. Almost all of these models were developed for coastal environments. In this study, two computer models, named ROSS and LROSS, were developed for simulating oil slick transport in rivers and lakes, respectively. This report explains how to use the microcomputer-based versions of these two models.
