15th Biennial Workshop of Joint Numerical Sea Modelling Group (JONSMOD)
B. Viikmäe from the Tallinn team presented a paper aiming at creating a technology that would provide a substantial decrease of remote environmental risks (e.g. ship-caused pollution that frequently affects vulnerable areas far from the accident site) by minimizing the consequences of potential accidents. The central idea is smart use of the existence of statistically heterogeneous
semi-persistent current patterns, which considerably affect pollution propagation as well as drift of various items such as vessels without propulsion, rescue boats or lost containers.
