NEW CHEMICAL RESPONSE TOOL FROM NOAA

The Chemical Aquatic Fate and Effects (CAFE) database is a software program you can use to estimate the fate and effects of thousands of chemicals, oils, and dispersants.

CAFE serves as a tool to help responders in their assessment of environmental impacts from chemical or oil spills into an aquatic environment.

Using CAFE, you can choose between four different spill scenarios: chemical, oil only, dispersant only, and dispersants mixed with oil.

For handy referece the link for downloading this very useful tool has been added to both the Oil Spill Response and Chemical / HNS Response sections of the Technical & Reference area on the ISCO wbsite. Look under Members' Menu, then click on Technical & Reference. You will need to scroll down to the NOAA entry.
