Marine pollution transport model available under MPERSS

Type of pollution model Oil Spill Prediction / Object Drift Model
Name of model  
References Outline of the Operational Numerical Weather Prediction at the Japan Meteorological Agency (March 2013, http://www.jma.go.jp/jma/jma-eng/jma-center/nwp/outline2013-nwp/index.htm)
Free Yes
Input (pollutant data) Oil type, location, time of incident, spill amount and rate
Input (Environmental data) Surface wind, wave, current and SST
Trajectory algorithm: Wind Wind and wave data come from JMA's operational models (Global Spectral Model; GSM and Global Wave Model; GWM).
Trajectory algorithm: Current Ocean current comes from JMA's operational ocean model (MOVE-WNP). Only analyzed values of MOVE-WNP are used in the trajectory algorithm.
The trajectory algorithm include wind current, which is estimated from surface winds.
Tidal currents are not included.
Trajectory algorithm: Waves (generation method, effect on advection) Stokes drift and diffusion effect by waves are taken into account.
Fate algorithm: evaporation, emulsification... Spreading, Evaporation, Dispersion
Model Output/Validation Locations of spilled oil are plotted by parcels in maps.Evaporation and water content (emulsion) are expressed in current map. Comparison with trajectory data of drifting buoys.
Application area Northwestern Pacific
Real-time response capacity This model can be operated twice a day, or once every 12 hours.
