A simple single-phase pollutant trajectory model and two basic components, a method for computing surface currents, and a method for computing surface winds, were developed for the Puget Sound region. The model simulates the motion of a number of discrete floating elements under the influence of surface currents, surface winds, and parameterized diffusion. The floating elements may be introduced from several (possibly moving) sources. The computed paths of these elements approximate the paths that would be followed by a single-phase floating pollutant. The model is operational and may be accessed via voice-grade telephone lines.
