Modeling of ocean carbon system

There is increasing focus on ocean carbon cycle modeling as a tool for exploring basic marine science questions and addressing the pressing societal issues of climate change and ocean acidification. The ocean carbon cycle reflects a complex interplay of seawater physical chemistry, ocean circulation, and biogeochemical transformations and transport. A hierarchy of modeling approaches is thus required, spanning from idealized case studies and ocean tracer analogues to full three-dimensional physical–biogeochemical simulations, inverse models, and data assimilation.
