A Method to Enable a Dynamic Spill Response Regime through the Use of Numerical Modeling
Aurelien Hospital, Jim Stronach, and M.W. (MAC) McCARTHY
On behalf of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, a framework of numerical models was used to simulate the transport and fate of a number of hypothetic diluted bitumen spills in coastal BC. In addition to providing the required information for permit applications, the modeling framework also demonstrated its value with respect to establishing a dynamic spill response regime.
