During an oil spill, wind speed and direction don't
always remain constant. By using the overflight observations
to add variable wind speed into the simulation, it is
possible to more accurately predict the impact of the
spill. This final simulation shows a prediction of the
areas that might be damaged after the model is adjusted
to account for the overflight observations.
