Model-based investigation of nitrogen and oxygen cycles in the oxygen minimum...

The nitrogen and oxygen cycles of the eastern tropical South Pacific (ETSP) are investigated with a box and a high-resolution 3D model. The reduced remineralization rate under anoxic conditions slower than that via aerobic respiration can prevent nitrate depletion in the oxygen minimum zone. The local...
Dissertation

Model based analysis of plankton responses to variations in nutrient stoichiometry...

The present study aims to investigate the effect of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) cycling on elemental stoichiometry of marine plankton across different trophic ecosystem levels in the Eastern Tropical South Pacific boundary system of Peru. The Peruvian upwelling region is one of the most productive...
Dissertation

Model assessment and model-based data analyses of an ocean acidification...

This thesis explains plankton dynamics observed in an ocean acidification mesocosm experiment by applying different plankton models.
