Towards an assessment of simple global marine biogeochemical models of different complexity

Abstract:

We present a suite of experiments with a hierarchy of biogeochemical models of increasing complexity coupled to an offline global ocean circulation model based on the " transport matrix method" Biogeochemical model structures range from simple nutrient models to more complex nutrient-phytoplankton-zooplankton-detritus-DOP models. The models' skill is assessed by various misfit functions with respect to observed phosphate and oxygen distributions. While there is generally good agreement betwee...
