The trajectory of oil spill or missing person on the sea surface marks the movement of the seawater, so forecasting the drift of floating object in the open ocean is an important ocean application. Many nations support services for search-and-rescue and ship safety, all of which may benefit from drift forecasts. We implement a marine search-and-rescue and oil spill prediction system. Take advantage of ROMS (Regional Ocean Model System) model forced by a meteorology wind field, our trajectory prediction model can provide the possible trajectories of drifting object. Therefore, a short time after shipwreck occurred, system can accurately provide the possible locations of survivors or spill oil, giving support to the search-and-rescue effort and pollution emergency.
