The microcomputer is a very useful oilspill response tool: It can help the spill contingency planner organize and present a wide variety of information; it can help the spill response trainer create realistic scenarios and models of spill events; and it can help the spill response operations manager optimize operational decisions and expedite a variety of communications. This paper suggests some specific ways microcomputers can help plan for and respond to oil spills, and it focuses on a computer program written to help expedite operational decisions and optimize operations for the chemical dispersion of spilled oil in Alaskan waters.
