Software for Oil Spill Movement And Removal






What is SOSMAR?



SOSMAR is a software, developed in Matlab and available in standalone and Matlab versions, used to simulate the evolution of oil spills in sea and perform a risk analysis of possible affected areas. For instance, it helps to estimate:


·       Geographical areas in sea and coast that will be affected. 


·       When and how many oil will reach the coast.


·       Characteristics of the oil (e.g., viscosity and density).
