Cape Canyon Benthic Invertebrates Tissue samples

Submarine canyons are heterogeneous environments known to support a variety of benthic organisms, and often considered biodiversity hotspots. Canyon morphological features facilitate the funneling of organic matter to the seabed, making them significant hubs of food resources for benthic life. In light of this, the DFFE: Oceans and Coasts initiative undertook the collection of benthic tissue data aimed at understanding how hydrography affects food availability for benthic species within and...

A stand alone 1D-vertical version of the Coastal and Regional Ocean COmmunity model (CROCO)

A 1D-vertical model originally developed by Florian Lemarie to test different vertical mixing parameterisations implemented in the full version of the CROCO source code. The model is run as a python script, simplifying the setup and testing of different 1D model configurations. The python script loops through time and calls a 1D version of the CROCO Fortran code at each time-step. A description of the input variables and how to implement the code is provided in scm_oce.pdf. Some examples of...
