PhD project: Optimised modelling for the prediction of algal response to changing light fields

Supervisors: David McKee and Neil Banas, University of Strathclyde

I’m working towards establishing recommendations for optimised modelling approaches that have sufficient predictive skill but without increasing the model complexity. Essentially, to what extent does a better resolved phytoplankton taxonomy and spectrally resolved light field result in improved prediction of primary production?
