NPZD_FRANKS Vs. NPZD_POWELL

#1 Post by drivas » Wed Nov 05, 2014 8:42 pm

Hi,

I have a few questions about the biological NPZD modules available in the ROMS code. Module NPZD_FRANKS is supposed to be based on the paper by Franks et al. (1986) but the biological model in this paper is an NPZ and not an NPZD, i.e., no detritus are included. I understand the need to include the detritus in the model's equations, but it's not clear what equations are used exactly in module NPZD_FRANKS. Moreover, how different are the equation system used in module NPZD_FRANKS with respect to that in module NPZD_POWELL?
I'd appreciate any comment about these doubts. Thanks.
