BOOM! - BOost Organic matter Modelling

This project aims at improving the representation of organic matter decay in lake models, in both the water column and the sediments.

Particularly we are interested into implementing and testing different concepts of organing matter decay ranging between the classical two-organic-matter-fraction formulation (labile vs. refractory), up to the reactivity continuum.

We will:

  • review the current formulation in GLM-AED
  • apply the current GLM-AED formulation in a Monte Carlo framework
  • develop a new formulation to explicitly include the continuum concept

We are looking for appropriate field or experimental data to assess the capability of the different model formulations to account to the complex patterns of oranic matter composition and decay found in aquatic water bodies.
