Sensitivity analysis of PROTECH, a new approach in phytoplankton modelling

  title={Sensitivity analysis of PROTECH, a new approach in phytoplankton modelling},
  author={J. Alex Elliott and Andrew Irish and Colin S. Reynolds and Paul Tett},
The lake phytoplankton community model, PROTECH includes nested regression equations for the effect of surface:volume ratio, temperature and irradiance on growth rate. A sensitivity analysis was carried out of the effect of changing the regression slope coefficients on three aspects of the simulated output for Blelham Tarn, English Lake District, with fixed environmental variables. The assessed variables were K, the maximum biomass; K, time taken in days to reach K and the exponential growth… CONTINUE READING
