The biological model

In order to test Van Geen's hypothesis of a shelf metal trap on the shelf of the Gulf of Cadiz, a conservative primary production biological model has been coupled with the hydrodynamical model. Its aim is to evaluate the primary production in the Gulf and so to check if the trace metals concentrations fixed by the plankton can fit with the observed concentrations.
