Excerpt
Abstract: During emergency oil spill response efforts, estimates of the movement and spreading of the pollutant provide critical information. These estimates are typically obtained by analyzing a series of models or database look-ups. The strategy described in this paper for conducting this analysis can be likened to game theory?s ?minimum regret? approach. We describe alternate model use techniques and identify a well-defined series of model runs required to support minimum-regret trajectory analysis. This standard series of model runs is generic and could be carried out by any of the oil spill trajectory models commonly available for emergency response.
