The CoastWeb-Model – Structures and Set-Up
- 443 Downloads
The aim of this chapter is to present the basic structure of the CoastWeb-model. Most of the structures and equations for the coastal version of the model are the same as for the LakeWeb-model (see Håkanson and Boulion, 2002a), but there are also differences related to the transformation of a lake model to a model for the entire Baltic Sea. It is certainly important which organisms and processes are accounted for in models of this kind, and it is equally important to explain and motivate how this is done. To keep the text short and to the point, we will present a series of overview figures. We will also discuss how the CoastWeb-model differs from other seemingly similar models.
