An operational system for the prediction of oil spills in the Sea of Japan is developed. The modelled climatological sea currents were generated by the three-dimensional primitive ocean circulation model with 10-minute horizontal resolution and 19 vertical levels. The model was forced by climatological atmospheric winds and heat fluxes. The oil spill was modelled with the particle tracking techniques. The model included the advection by currents, random diffusion, buoyancy effect and the parameterization of oil evaporation, biodegradation and beaching. The realization of the model is the real-time simulations and forecasts of the ocean currents with the fine resolution in the upper layer of the Sea of Japan.
