The aim of this project is to develop a mathematical model to forecast oil spill transport in order to determine response and clean-up operations in Bosphorus. Thousands of tons of oil is spilled and mixed with seawater due to tanker accidents that have taken place in Bosphorus. Eleven of twenty-eight ships that sunk in Bosphorus due to accidents or breakdown since 1979 are tankers. Some of these sinkages on the sea floor are believed to be still leeking oil. Oil spill contingency plans should be prepared for these kind of accidents. An important component of oil spill contingency plans is the use of mathematical models to predict the oil slick motion and distribution of oil particle concentration in the coastal waters.
