ECOTIP D3.3 Trait-based zooplankton model
- 1. DTU Aqua
This deliverable supplies a demonstration of the metazoan plankton component (essentially copepods) of a
generalized trait-based plankton model (NUM model), and is a direct output from Task 3.1 Generalized traitbased model of plankton. It outlines and documents the scientific basis of the model and provides a list of
parameters and algorithms, and how it is integrated with the unicellular component of the NUM model. The
deliverable provides a “cook book” of how a user can access the model code and integrate it into a Matlab
“front end” for their own use and experimentation. The deliverable also provides a set of examples that users
can follow. All code is freely available.
