Transition from SOG/PISCES to SMELT¶
The biological model dynamics are adapted from the 1-d SOG model with some modifications for the 3-d domain, as described in the following sections.
Differences in Mesozooplankton Closure implementation¶
It was necessary to adapt the implementation of the mesozooplankton closure term to three dimensions. In SMELT, the seasonally-varying mesozooplankton population is distributed in three dimensions so that its abundance is proportional to its food source.
