This dataset contains complete input, output, and executable model run files for Atlantis simulations of the Ixtoc-1 oil spill. The model outputs included describes simulations from 1979 to 2015; the spatial domain is the western and southern Gulf of Mexico. The data directory "SGoM_Atlantis_oil" contains the simulation with oil effect acting on fish and the directory "SGoM_Atlantis_nooil" contains a control simulation with no oil effect (no-spill scenario). This dataset supports the paper Ortega-Ortiz et al. (submitted manuscript, 2018).
This data set includes estimations of ecological impacts of the Ixtoc-1 oil spill on living functional groups described by Atlantis, and in polygons delineated by the Atlantis polygon map.
