... The current MMS practice of using wind patterns that are not related to the winds driving the water motions may lead to substantial errors in estimating the oil motion. We recommend that the calculations of oil movement be made as a part of the model run.
From page 135...
... Physical oceanographers engaged in field work and modeling should work together closely to design observational and numerical experiments so that necessary and sufficient initial, boundary, and updating data, as well as critical data sets for calibration and verification, are all obtained. Data-assimilation techniques should be explored.
