Introduction to the Modelling of Marine Ecosystems

(with MATLAB programs on accompanying CD-ROM)

Authors: W. Fennel, T. Neumann Publisher: Elsevier Science Publication date: 2004 Publication language: Angielski Number of pages: 308 EAN: 9780080930831 ISBN: 9780080930831 Category: Quantity surveying Computing & information technology Publisher's index: S0422-9894(04)X8001-6 Bibliographic note: Dr. Thomas Neumann is senior scientist working in the section of physical oceanography in the Baltic Sea Research Institute, (IOW). After an initial oceanographic career in small scale processes in the sea he turned his scientific interests in the 1990ties to coupled physical and biological modeling. He is one of the leading experts in coupled physical biogeochemical models.


Modelling of marine ecosystems is a rapidly developing branch of interdisciplinary oceanographic research. Introduction to the Modelling of Marine Ecosystems is the first consistent and comprehensive introduction to the development of models of marine ecosystems. It begins with simple first steps of modelling and develops more and more complex models. This step-by-step approach to increasing the complexity of the models is intended to allow students of biological oceanography and interested scientists with only limited experience in mathematical modelling to explore the theoretical framework and familiarize oneself with the methods. The book describes how biological model components can be integrated into three dimensional circulation models and how such models can be used for 'numerical experiments'.

The book illustrates the mathematical aspects of modelling and gives application examples. The tutorial aspect of the book is supported by a set of MATLAB programs, which are provided on an accompanying CD-Rom and which can be used to reproduce many of the results presented in the book.
