IOW models

IOW standard version

This is the version which is normally used at IOW for Baltic Sea applications.

TEP and DON add-on

This adds transparent exopolymers (=particulate organic carbon and phosphorus) and dissolved organic nitrogen to the IOW standard model.

GENUS add-on South Atlantic

This converts the Baltic Sea model to a South Atlantic model designed for the Benguela upwelling system in the GENUS project. Special focus is on zooplankton with three different functional groups and diel vertical migration.
