We investigate the effects of algal cell size on the competition for nutrients and light in an incompletely mixed water column, employing a spatially explicit variable internal stores approach and previously published allometric scaling relationships for modeling phytoplankton growth. We analyze the interplay between the size-dependent vertical assimilation and uptake profiles and the role of environmental settings such as mixing intensity, nutrient loading and background turbidity for the… CONTINUE READING
