Modelling aquaculture effects in the Firth of Thames
A new simulation model of nutrient and phytoplankton dynamics developed by NIWA is being used in the Firth of Thames.
Time & depth averaged simulated concentrations of dinoflagellates, dissolved inorganic nitrogen, diatoms, and phytoflagellates in the Firth of Thames, May 2003. The scale is the log of the concentration in milligrams per cubic metre. This work was funded by the Auckland Regional Council, Environment Waikato, and the Western Firth Marine Farming Consortium.
