Modeling the coupling of ocean ecology and biogeochemistry

Dutkiewicz, Stephanie; Follows, Michael J.; Bragg, Jason


We examine the interplay between ecology and biogeochemical cycles in the context of a global three-dimensional ocean model where self-assembling phytoplankton communities emerge from a wide set of potentially viable cell types. We consider the complex model solutions in the light of resource competition theory. The emergent community structures and ecological regimes vary across different physical environments in the model ocean: Strongly seasonal, high-nutrient regions are dominated by fast...[Show more]
