Reviews and syntheses: parameter identification in marine planktonic ecosystem modelling
Abstract. To describe the underlying processes involved in oceanic plankton dynamics is crucial for the determination of energy and mass flux through an ecosystem and for the estimation of biogeochemical element cycling. Many planktonic ecosystem models were developed to resolve major processes so that flux estimates can be derived from numerical simulations. These results depend on the type and number of parameterizations incorporated as model equations. Furthermore, the values assigned to respective parameters specify a model’s solution.

Calibrating a global three-dimensional biogeochemical ocean model (MOPS-1.0)
Abstract. Global biogeochemical ocean models contain a variety of different biogeochemical components and often much simplified representations of complex dynamical in- teractions, which are described by many ( ≈ 10 to ≈ 100) parameters. ...
