90-Day Particle Dispersion Simulation for AMS (Northeast Monsoon)

This video shows the dispersion of passive particles within the entire AMS, as advected by ocean currents during the Northeast Monsoon. Daily global surface currents from the COPERNICUS-GLOBCURRENT dataset were used in a Lagrangian model, to obtain the particle trajectories from a single release made on all coastline cells. Day 1 shows the particle positions at the point of origin, and Day 90 shows the particle positions at the end of the run. For this case, a total of 179,000 particles were released.
