Abstract

A three-dimensional ecosystem model of the NW European continental shelf is used to simulate the seasonal cycle of nutrients (N, P, Si) and primary and secondary production during 1995. Nutrient budgets within areas of the shelf are calculated and their component parts (advective, benthic, pelagic, riverine, recycling) are examined. Nutrient fluxes across sections of the continental shelf are also calculated and compared with previous modelled/observed flux values.
