A testbed for zooplankton models of the Irish Sea
Entry ID: GLOBEC_059_UK_009


Summary
Abstract: The aim is to establish a numerical model system providing
a robust 3-dimensional physical environment within which
ecosystem and zooplankton models of different structure
and complexity will be compared and assessed. The
principle aims are: to provide a hydrodynamic/ecological
testbed for development and testing of models of zooplankton
dynamics; to formally compare existing models of ecosystem
dynamics in the testbed and evaluate performance against
archived data; to identify important processes and scales
of interaction for Irish Sea zooplankton populations and
to determine the optimal complexity of marine hydrodynamic
and ecosystem models necessary to describe zooplankton
dynamics in the Irish Sea.
