Drifters put through their paces

The accuracy of oil spill drift forecasts based solely on mathematical models is subject to uncertainty based on the approximations made when models are set up. TOSCA has shown that this uncertainty can be reduced with the help of live observation.

LAVA ENHANCES DRIFT MODELS

By blending radar and drifter data, it is possible to enhance oil slick drift forecasts. This is what TOSCA partners have observed thanks to LAVA. Customized for the TOSCA project, this software was tested with data gathered during observation off the coast of Toulon

TODAY... AND TOMORROW

After almost three years of tests and experiments, TOSCA has now gained currency as a tool capable of enhancing oil slick tracking models, enabling more accurate tracking of drift pathways following maritime accidents. Current results are however based on limited periods of observation
