Description Results have informed national and international policy development, industrial decision-making and operational commercial activities. The long term investment into model development, in particular the coupling of carbon dioxide chemistry with biological and 3D physical processes has enabled PML to quickly address several key issues that are crucial to the efficient and economic development of carbon capture and storage in the UK and further afield. In particular with the UK now developing commercial scale CCS the need for scientific support has been urgent. The model has enabled PML to successfully bid into the ETI Marine Monitoring and Verification (MMV) Project, predicated on designing and building an AUV based monitoring system to detect CO2 leakage in the marine environment as well as the Horizon 2020 funded STEMM project, developing novel methods of monitoring. The model has been used to construct baselines of spatial and temporal variability of CO2 associated parameters (pH and pCO2) in the absence of sufficient observational data, which enable the development of monitoring strategies. Outputs from PML modelling have been used to provide advice to governments about pressures on fisheries under climate change, for example a Policy Note for the Government of Bangladesh. Outcomes from PML modelling have informed the Environmental Audit Committee Enquiry into the Environmental Impact of Microplastics and contributed to a UK Government POSTnote on Marine Microplastic Pollution. Outcomes from PML modelling have underpinned a formal response by Plymouth Marine Laboratory to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee enquiry on Ocean Acidification. PML supplied an expert witness, Dr Carol Turley who gave oral evidence to the committee on the 2nd March, 2017.

Title Parameterization of zoobenthic response to low pH in ERSEM benthic model 
Description Zoobenthic functional groups of suspension-feeders and deposit-feeders were divided into tolerant and sensitive sub-groups according to their uptake response to stress induced by low pH. These responses summarize variable strategies implemented by zoobenthos and reported in the recent literature. Each subgroup exerts three stages of response to low pH: decreased uptake due to pH stress, shutting-down (no uptake) and increased morality rates at extremely low pH. Tolerant group remains more active at lower pH compared to sensitive one.

Impact Model simulations carried out with the new model (ERSEM+SMP) suggested that after the onset of the proper physical conditions (i.e reduced turbulence and mixed layer depth), phytoplankton decrease in palatability and the subsequent decrease in grazing activity play a significant role in the formation of a bloom. The main output of this work is a conceptual model synergistically combining the abiotic and biotic processes potentially concurring to a phytoplankton bloom formation (Polimene et al., submitted to Progress in Oceanography).

PI Contribution We have set up a UK FVCOM interest group that includes representatives from SAMS, NOCL and Marine Scotland. We held our first meeting at PML in September 2012. Since then, we have setup a wiki and SVN repository for sharing common tools related to FVCOM and model implementations to foster collaborations and enhance our understanding of the model's capabilities.
Collaborator Contribution The partners have contributed with intellectual inputs and shared experiences.
Impact The partnership is mostly focused on the use of FVCOM and associated models (wave, sediment and ecosystem models) and provides a platform for exchange of ideas and experiences. As such, this is a multidisciplinary collaboration involving physical oceanography, ecology and ecosystem modelling and numerical methods. We have produced a Wiki (web based how-to manual) where the partners exchange their experiences and solutions to common problems in detail. Improvements to the code and/or analysis tools are also documented here. We also host an SVN repository (version control software) of the FVCOM code together with each partner's updates to the code. The exchange of information has enabled a more robust and consistent approach to implementations of FVCOM in different regions of the UK.

Impact Lake Urmia is a salt lake in northwestern Iran not far from the Turkish border. It is believed to be one of the largest salt lakes on the planet. The lake has been drying out and the surrounding desert has been expanding in recent years, having a serious impact on the climate and environment of the region. In the last twenty years it has shrunk by 60% due to climate change and damming of the rivers flowing into the lake. PML is working within a NIVA led project to develop and apply modelling tools for the lake in order to help assess the environmental impact of a proposed plan to possible environmental effects of transferring water from the Caspian Sea to salt Lake Urmia to prevent it from drying out.

Title FAMB ERSEM 
Description The Framework for Aquatic Biogeochemical Models (FABM): a Fortran 2003 programming framework for biogeochemical models of marine and freshwater systems. FABM enables complex biogeochemical models to be developed as sets of stand-alone, process-specific modules. These can be combined at runtime to create custom-tailored models. This approach has been adopted to implement several large ecosystem models in FABM, including ERSEM (marine), and AED and PCLake (freshwater). FABM has also been used to model suspended sediment and redox chemistry. FABM has been coupled to several hydrodynamic models, including GOTM, GETM, GLM, MOM4 and MOM5. It also comes with a stand-alone box model driver. FABM uses modern software standards: it is coded in object-oriented Fortran 2003, has a build system based on CMake, and uses YAML files for configuration. FABM makes it easy to partition complex biogeochemistry over many building blocks, called "model instances" in FABM. The fabm-ersem port currently makes everything that can be considered as "integral physical particle" a model instance.

Title Generic prokaryote 
Description A new formulation describing the metabolism of a generic, non photosynthetic prokaryote (bacteria and archaea) has been implemented in the European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model (ERSEM). The new formulation implies that different metabolic pathways (aerobic heterotrophy, anaerobic heterotrophy and chemolithotrophy) act simultaneously. However, the relative magnitude of each pathway dynamically varies depending on the environmental conditions (i.e. O2 concentration, DOM and NH4). Thanks to this feature, the model is able to simulate in a dynamic way important processes such as denitrification, nitrification and N2O production. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact The new formulation substantially improves the representation of the nitrogen cycle in ERSEM 
 
Title Mixothrophy 
Description A new formulation describing mixotrophy has been implemented in the European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model (ERSEM). The new model implies that mixotrophic plankton is able to select the most convenient feeding strategy (phototrophy or phagotrophy) depending on the availability of light, nutrients and potential prey (bacteria and small phytoplankton). 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2016 
Impact The new formulation will allow to test the importance of mixothrophy in the planktonic ecosystem and assess its impact on trophic fluxes and carbon export.

Title Salinity stress 
Description A simple model describing the relationship between growth and salinity in a generic species of the genus Dunaliella (green algae) has been developed. The new formulation implies an "optimal" level of salinity under which Dunaliella species manage to optimise their growth. When environmental salinity diverges from the optimal level both hyposaline and hypersaline stress are described by the model (by decreasing the photosynthetic rate). The new model has been implemented in the primary production module of the European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model. In particular the new formulation has been applied to the phytoplankton functional type "P2" which in ERSEM describes the dynamics of phytoplankton ranging from 2 to 20 um in diameter (nanoplankton). The model was preliminarily run in a zero-dimensional configuration in order to reproduce a batch culture experiment reported in literature 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact With this new formulation ERSEM can better describe plankton dynamics in environments in which salinity plays an important role in shaping phytoplankton community (e.g. estuaries) 
 
Title Silica dissolution in the water column 
Description A new formulation describing the dissolution of particulate organic silica in the water column has been developed and implemented in the European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model (ERSEM). Silica dissolution is assumed to be dependent on temperature and on the ratio between silica and carbon in the particles. Si:C ratio represents the magnitude of the organic coat which reduces the dissolution of silica (i.e. low Si:C ratios decrease the dissolution rate). In this way, the model accounts for the role played by pelagic bacteria in this process. Bacteria, in fact, are able to increase the Si:C ratio in particulate organic matter by only using C and leaving Si. 
Type Of Technology Software 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact This new development improves the representation of Si dynamics in ERSEM

Title Trait Explorer 
Description For many applications we need to know the traits of marine species. This is crucial for understanding ecosystem function and building ecosystem models. Unfortunately, while literature and online databases are replete with trait values, we are still a long way away from a complete characterization of every species. The Trait Explorer web service addresses this issue by estimating traits for any species, through a form of "automated expert judgement" that combines large datasets with published trait values and the latest taxonomic information. Its results account for taxonomic relationships between species (related species tend to have similar traits) and power law-like relationships between traits (e.g., organism mass is a good predictor for other size metrics and many physiological traits). 
Type Of Technology Webtool/Application 
Year Produced 2017 
Impact The Trait Explorer web service is used in the NERC/Defra Shelf Seas Biogeochemistry (SSB) programme and the Marine Ecosystem Research Programme (MERP) to estimate the size and carbon mass of a wide variety of marine species, which in turn is used for validation of model results, notably of the European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model (ERSEM).

Results and Impact The second workshop of the 'Network of Experts for ReDeveloping Models of the European Marine Environment' was held on 22-23 March 2017 in Brussels, Belgium, jointly organized by DG Environment and DG JRC (Water and Marine Resources Unit) within the framework of the Administrative Arrangement (N110661/ENV.C.2/2016/733192) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MFSD). The aim of this workshop was to continue the information exchange between the Commission and marine modelling experts. Another important objective of this initiative is to narrow the gap between modellers and decision makers in order to better exploit the full utility of models. In this context, the workshop consisted of 17 presentations covering the wide use of marine ecosystem models to address several indicators of the MFSD in coastal zones and European regional seas, including assessment, indicator development and scenario building. The presentations dealt with (1) General lectures, (2) Eutrophication, (3) Hydrography, (4) Higher Trophic Levels and (5) Fish. The participants were invited to join the network informal 'Network of experts on the Modelling of the European Marine Environment (MEME)'. DG Environment and DG JRC emphasized the added value of a joint effort to further develop modelling capabilities with the objective of providing useful advice for policy makers.

Results and Impact Presentation at the ASLO Aquatic Sciences meeting, 26 Feb - 3 Mar 2017, Hawaii: "How to capture species succession and evolution in large-scale biogeochemical models?"

Abstract:
In nature, part of the impact of environmental change on ecosystem functioning is cushioned by changes in species composition and by genetic evolution: the community adapts. These responses can reduce the sensitivity of mass and energy fluxes to change - a key parameter in climate change research. The potential influence of these responses is greatest in the ocean, where the cycling of matter and energy is dominated by small, fast reproducing species. However, the models that routinely predict the response of marine systems to climate change do not describe species diversity and evolution in any detail, and are not easily amended to do so. Recent "trait-based" approaches provide a conceptual framework for the modelling of species diversity, but their present implementations remain computationally expensive and unsuitable for the dynamic introduction of new types, implicit in genetic evolution. I discuss how these problems can be addressed by leveraging concepts and methods from the field of "adaptive dynamics". By describing the intra- and interspecific diversity in terms of the distribution of a few key traits, the dynamic structure of the ecosystem can be modelled with a few variables. As shown with a canonical ecosystem model in a spatially resolved world ocean, this approach remains viable in the presence of advective and diffusive transport of biota, and smoothly incorporates genetic evolution as another source of biodiversity, linked to reproductive effort. These provide a starting point for the modelling of species diversity and evolution in computationally efficient manner.
