General NOAA Operational Modeling Environment (GNOME)

Emergency Response Division (ERD) of NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration (OR&, amp, amp, amp, amp, R), National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration

GNOME is the oil spill trajectory model used by NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration Emergency Response Division (ERD) responders during an oil spill. The program takes user input of information about a spill, along with a Location File containing prepackaged tide and current data for the region of interest (also available via this page), and generates an oil spill "movie" showing the predicted trajectory of the oil. This page provides information on downloading and using the GNOME software.
