GNOME (the General NOAA Oil Modeling Environment)

Summary
Abstract: GNOME (the General NOAA Oil Modeling Environment) is a free computer program
you can use to
- predict how wind, currents, and other processes might move and spread oil
spilled on the water.

- learn how predicted oil trajectories are affected by inexactness
("uncertainty") in current and wind observations and forecasts.

- see how spilled oil is predicted to change chemically and physically
("weather") during the time that it remains on the water surface.

To use GNOME, you describe a spill scenario by entering information into the
program; GNOME then creates and displays an oil spill "movie" showing the
predicted trajectory of the oil spilled in your scenario. Along with GNOME,
most users also will want to download the location files for their regions of
interest. Location files contain prepackaged tide and current data and make it
easier to work with GNOME.
