UM Researchers Develop Model for Locating and Forecasting Sunken Oil Following Spills (2 of 3) (image) University of Miami Share Print E-Mail Caption These are images showing relative concentrations of sunken oil on the bottom of a bay inlet, assessed for a simulated spill scenario. The new computational model was developed by a team of researchers at the University of Miami headed by Dr. James Englehardt, UM professor of environmental engineering in the College of Engineering. The unique model can be used in oil spill planning, response, and recovery applications. Credit Maria Angelica Echavarria Gregory, Pedro M. Avellaneda and James Englehardt.
