The ERSP, EBSP, and EDSP Calculators are intended as planning tools for estimating the potential of different oil spill response systems to mitigate (recover, burn or disperse) discharged oil relative to one another. These planning tools are NOT intended to be used as models for calculating system performance during an actual oil spill, which is affected by many factors such as the distribution of oil on the water surface, oil weathering, and other ambient onscene conditions which are not included in these Calculators.
If the entered Swath > MES, the calculator uses the Swath = MES for that day.
