Project: Quantification and modelling of the pelagic microbial foodweb in an estuarine system, in case the Scheldt estuary
- project duration
- 01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
- Tracing of carbon and nitrogen fluxes in the food chain through pulse-chase isotope labelling and monitoring of natural isotope abundances in zooplankton and suspended matter. Implementation of a mathematical model that describes the dynamics of the ecosystem compounds in terms of carbon and nitrogen. Incorporation of the detailed model in an existing estuarine model and Incorporation of the detailed model in an existing estuarine model and quantification of the importance of the microbial loop on an estuarine scale.
