LOICZ- Biogeochemical Modelling Node
This Node provides a focus for the aggregation of biogeochemical budget model outputs. The goal is to compile regional carbon/nitrogen/phosphorus data and budget models for numerous coastal areas of the world that can be used to produce global syntheses models of their flux in the coastal zone. The original creators of the Biogeochemical Modelling Node are F. Wulff and S. Smith. For more information about the LOICZ budget site, or to contribute a budget, contact D. P. Swaney.
