Resum
The CAMCAT oil spill forecasting system is presented in this paper, and an evaluation of the impact of errors in the forcing fields over its forecasts is carried out. The system is formed by several independent modules which provide forecasts of winds, currents and waves to an oil spill module which predicts the evolution of the spill. The typical twin-experiments experience is used paying special attention to a realistic characterization of the errors when perturbing the forcing fields. The res...
