Keywords: Modeling, phytoplankton, adaptation, ecosystem, simulation, vertical mixing

Abstract: The OCEAN BIO-MODELS Project is a long term research and development programme whose goal is to establish the capability of producing mathematical/numerical models of a marine ecosystem of the Barents Sea, north of Norway. The system is modeled by a set of submodels describing the physical oceanography, chemical oceanography and production and distribution of phytoplankton, zooplankton and fish. In this paper, a phytoplankton model containing light adaptation properties is developed.
