Abstract:

Harmful Algal Blooms HABs are an ecological response to the physical, chemical, biological, and optical forcing in the marine environment. Successful forecasting of HABs requires simulating the competitive interactions of the total phytoplankton assemblage and the resultant feedback mechanisms into the spectral light and nutrient fields. Our goal is to develop the phytoplankton interaction equations to predict the assemblage shifts and resulting phytoplankton blooms on the West Florida Shelf WFS.
