Caveats: 'Drifters' were simulated over a larger area than the actual spill, no degradation of the 'oil' is accounted for, errors are possibly large
The simulation is intiated with positions found on this map:
The visualization simulates particle drift using code developed for Ohlmann et al. (2012).
