Modelling the time-evolution of phytoplankton size spectra from satellite remote sensing

Abstract:

A dynamic size-structured model is developed for phytoplankton and nutrients in the oceanic mixed layer and applied to extract phytoplankton biomass at discrete size fractions from remotely sensed, ocean-colour data. General relationships between cell size and biophysical processes (such as sinking, grazing, and primary production) of phytoplankton were included in the model through a bottom - up approach. Time-dependent, mixed-layer depth was used as a forcing variable, and a sequential data...
