TOSCA project rewarded by the Alain Vatrican 2013 Prize within the RAMOGE Initiative

19/06/2013 Destacats News

Laura Cimoli, a student from the University of Genoa, was given last June the first Alain Vatrican Prize (ex-aequo) for her works on the pollutants dispersion and in particular, her particles modelling approach. For achieving her project, Laura Cimoli relied on experimental data collected during the TOSCA campaign in the Gulf of Trieste (April 2012)

Fine tuning drift pathways
The TOSCA project observational network was set up in five high-risk areas and has shown that data from radars and drifters can provide real-time visibility of coastal surface currents. HF radars are the only way of obtaining a synoptic view of these currents, within reduced error margins of a few kilometres and a few hours.

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.
