## Introduction to the modelling of marine ecosystems by W. Fennel

By W. Fennel

Modelling of marine ecosystems is a swiftly constructing department of interdisciplinary oceanographic examine. advent to the Modelling of Marine Ecosystems is the 1st constant and complete creation to the advance of types of marine ecosystems. It starts with easy first steps of modelling and develops increasingly more advanced versions. This step by step method of expanding the complexity of the types is meant to permit scholars of organic oceanography and scientists with purely constrained adventure in mathematical modelling to discover the theoretical framework and familiarize oneself with the equipment. The ebook describes how organic version elements may be built-in into 3 dimensional circulate versions and the way such versions can be utilized for 'numerical experiments'. The ebook illustrates the mathematical features of modelling and provides program examples. the educational element of the e-book is supported through a collection of MATLAB courses, that are supplied on an accompanying CD-Rom and which might be used to breed the various effects provided within the book.

In this section we illustrate with a few simple examples how competition for nutrients can be taken into account. In textbooks the standard example for the interaction of 49 50 CHAPTER 3. 1: Diagram of the areas with respect to the nutrient level where one the group will win the competition. g. Murray (1993). We will, however, use equations close to the model discussed in the previous chapter. We start the discussion with a simple system of two phytoplankton groups, P1 and P2, which compete for the nutrient N.

The set of equations that describes the model food web is truncated at the trophic level of zooplankton. g. 2. 2 I ,L__ ~ = 50 I f L. / . %, % ~ I 100 ~ %, ~ ~ ~ ~~, ~ , ~ I I 150 200 . . .. ~ i , --L n__. 11: Annual cycle of the state variables nutrient N, phytoplankton, P, zooplankton, Z, (upper panel), and detritus, D, (lower panel). and predation by higher trophic levels, without a detailed description. 28) describes the vertical mixing of the two model layers during winter at the rate, amix, i.

For example, a group becomes dominant when it has an advantage concerning nutrient uptake compared to they other one. For the sake of simplicity we use a simple model with group specific uptake rates and constant loss rates. 3) where rl and r2 are the maximum uptake rates, kl and k2 are the half saturation constants, and 11 and 12 are the loss rates, which recycle the nutrients. Obviously the group with the larger net growth (uptake- losses) will win the competition. 1. COMPETITION 51 case where the initial values of P1 and P2 are equal.
