Long-term modeling of large-scale nutrient cycles in the entire Baltic Sea

  title={Long-term modeling of large-scale nutrient cycles in the entire Baltic Sea},
  author={Oleg P. Savchuk and Fredrik Wulff},
Management of eutrophication in marine ecosystems requires a good understanding of nutrient cycles at the appropriate spatial and temporal scales. Here, it is shown that the biogeochemical processes controlling large-scale eutrophication of the Baltic Sea can be described with a fairly aggregated model: simple as necessary Baltic long-term large scale (SANBALTS). This model simulates the dynamics of nitrogen, phosphorus, and silica driven by the external inputs, the major physical transports… CONTINUE READING
