Task 2.3: Model the impact of ocean acidification on sediment nutrient cycling and shelf productivity

Jerry Blackford, PML

 

H0 Elevated CO2 x temperature will have no significant impact on the mediation of ecosystem functions by sediment processes.


The consortium’s expertise and results will be used to improve conceptual and numerical models of benthic functioning which will be embedded in the 1D ERSEM-GOTM model. This model will be used to predict the impact of OA on benthic-mediated UK shelf processes (e.g. primary productivity).
