Results

Results from ecosystem modelling are presented here by way of animations:



LAUNCH ANIMATION
Results of the ecosystem model showing the concentration of chlorophyll, a measure of phytoplankton, in sea water in the Southern North Sea during one year.


LAUNCH ANIMATION
Results of the ecosystem model showing the temporal evolution of dissolved nitrates, phyto- and zooplankton biomass over one year.

MUMM's ecosystem modelling activities are funded by the Belgian Science Policy Office "Sustainable Development North Sea program" and are carried out in collaboration with the "Ecologie des Systèmes Aquatiques" (ESA) lab of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (C.Lancelot), the College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences of Oregon State University (Y.Spitz), and the Laboratory of Ecology and Systematics of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (N.Daro) in the AMORE project. Further details on the project can be obtained from the coordinator.
