A one-dimensional ecosystem box model is presented forcarrying capacity assessment. The model includesphysical and biological processes. The physicalprocesses are the transport of nutrients, suspendedmatter and phytoplankton through the system boundariesand between model boxes. The biological processes areprimary production and oyster (Crassostreagigas) population dynamics and physiology. The modelwas implemented using an object-oriented approach. Themodel was employed to estimate the carrying… CONTINUE READING
