Topics: Ecosystem modelling, modelling cycle, simple model setup and execution, scenarios

Module 2 | Ecosystem modelling
Topics: MIKE ECO lab templates, model selection, data input, conversion of monitoring data to model parameters, model calibration

Module 3 | My first MIKE ECO Lab model
Topics: Goodness-of-fit, linkages to hydrodynamic models, build-in functions, model components

Module 4 | Increasing complexity
Topics: Schematic models, coupled differential equations, NPZD models


Anders’ background is in ecological modelling of freshwater systems and the marine environment. He has extensive expertise in 2D & 3D hydrodynamic and environmental challenges including pycnocline modelling, algae blooms and oxygen depletion. He is currently working on a project that features real-time modelling, forecasting and research utilising the 3D ecological model developed for the Danish waters. Anders is also responsible for the development and evaluation of early warning systems for bathing water quality.
