A mathematical model of oil spill's transport and spreading is presented. The model differs from previous ones by its capability of taking simultaneously gravity, friction and surface tension into account - allowing the simulation of small experimental spills as well as large accidental spills - and by a new parameterization of surface tension and interface stresses, better adapted to real field conditions. The model is tested by the simulation of in situ experiments where the position and the thickness of the spill are measured by remote sensing. An excellent agreement is found between the model's predictions and the observations.
