Diatom dynamics in a coastal ecosystem affected by upwelling : coupling between species succession , circulation and biogeochemical processes

  title={Diatom dynamics in a coastal ecosystem affected by upwelling : coupling between species succession , circulation and biogeochemical processes},
  author={Gavin H. Tilstone and B. Martin Miguez and Francisco G. Figueiras and Eleanor Fermin},
The typical phytoplankton succession scenario in coastal upwelling zones is high diatom growth during upwelling and flagellate dominance during water column stratification. Within the diatom/flagellate succession there exist short-term changes in diatom communities that are caused by physical, chemical and biological processes. In this study, we used an improved 2-D kinematic box model to assess the influence of these processes on diatom dynamics in an estuarine ecosystem affected by coastal… CONTINUE READING
