In the study of Fan and Lv [11], SeaWiFS chlorophyll-a data were assimilated into a NPZD (Nutrient-Phytoplankton-Zooplankton-Detritus) model by the adjoint method; Pan et al.
Intermediate complexity biogeochemical models, like NPZD type models, simulate the interaction between nitrate, phytoplankton, zooplankton and detritus (Edwards 2001, Heinle & Slawig 2013).
While Nutrients-Phytoplankton-Zooplankton-Detritus (NPZD) models have been coupled to physical models (e.g., Franks and Chen, 2001), they do not typically incorporate or examine the transport of individual larvae (but see Daewel et al., 2008).
