Abstract

This study focus on the analysis of different algorithms used to describe underwater light attenuation in the coastal ocean and their impact on primary production processes in a numerical coupled model of the marine biogeochemical dynamics. Light parameterizations (novel and literature based) were embedded into the BFM-POM one dimensional modelling system. Results indicated that better representation of the light vertical profiles are obtained with a double exponential formulation, particu- larly when parameterized on the basis of extensive in situ data. Better representation of the light environment impacted positively on the quality of the marine ecosystem biogeochemical dynamics simulation.
