BLOSOM is NETL’s comprehensive modeling suite for offshore blowout events, adapted for jet/plume behavior, high pressures, gas and hydrate dynamics, droplet-size distributions, and subsurface plume formation.
NETL’s GOM Geocube focuses on the offshore Gulf of Mexico region. NETL’s Geocube is a flexible, customizable web mapping application that concatenates key spatial datasets and information relevant to energy research needs for a given region.
NETL’s Variable Grid Method (VGM) is a novel tool that visualizes spatial data and uncertainty simultaneously, allowing users to create data-driven variable grids — customized to best fit their data, analyses, and uncertainty — to help communicate and quantify spatial data in an intuitive manner.
Cumulative Spatial Impact Layers (CSIL) is a GIS-based tool that summarizes spatio-temporal datasets based on overlapping features and attributes. Applying a recursive quadtree method and multiple additive frameworks, the CSIL tool allows users to analyze raster and vector datasets simultaneously by calculating data, record, or attribute density.
