A microcomputer-based model of radionuclide spills and discharge plumes: En13-5/86-11E-PDF

"This report describes the implementation of a spill model for a shore-based contamination source on Lake Ontario. The code was developed on an IBM PC/XT to model the transport of radionuclide contaminants in the wind-driven shore currents. The model requires as inputs the half-day wind direction and speed for the previous thirty half-days and depth contours of the shoreline. The program computes the movements of discrete elements (representing the pollutants) in these shore currents"--Abstract.
