Abstract: A computer model for simulating oil slick transport in rivers is presented. In the model the effects of advection, spreading, evaporation, and dissolution on the transformation of an oil slick are considered. The model can be used to simulate instantaneous or continuous spills, and has been applied to simulate the fate of oil spills in the Great Lakes connecting channels.
