Project Report 2003

OBJECTIVES

To develop a coupled physical-biological model that can utilize available data to accurately simulate physical, chemical and biological processes within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS). To use the model to better understand the central California coastal upwelling ecosystem, its physical-biological processes, and biogeochemical and ecological material flow.
