A revision to mathematical and numerical to use in order to determine the trajectory and growth of a spill of petroleum in water was done. A numerical model was compared with some field data (11,12) and mathematical models. This comparison allowed us to determine the technical viability of using the numerical model for the prediction of the spill and evaluating the grade of adjustment of the studied models.
