Marine ecosystem modeling

Due to our expertise and experience in marine ecosystem modeling, we take charge of WP3. Within the scope of WP3, we develop a marine ecosystem model for the Baltic Sea, which we calibrate for past climate periods using data from WP1 and WP2. With the calibrated model, we perform climate projections and report the results to WP4.

I am a Professor in the department of biology at the University of Hamburg. My research focuses on marine ecosystem modelling and I work with aquatic organisms, espacially phytoplankton in marine systems.

Jana Hinners

I study the interaction between marine microorganisms, the phytoplankton, and the environment at Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon, Gesthacht. Specifically, I aim to understand how phytoplankton deal with environmental changes and what consequences arise for the functioning of marine ecosystems and biogeochemical processes like the biological carbon pump. For this purpose I combine lab experiment and data from cruises with ecosystem modelling.

Isabell Hochfeld

Isabell Hochfeld

I am a PhD student at the department of Biology at the University of Hamburg with a background in Geophysics, particularly physical volcanology. I develop computer models simulating the marine ecosystem with a specific focus on phytoplankton organisms.
Using these models, I study the eco-evolutionary adaption of phytoplankton to environmental changes and the impact of this adaption on ecosystem functioning and stability.
