Ecosystem modelling

Ecosystem modelling at NIOZ started in the1980's in the project group BOEDE (Biologisch Onderzoek Eems-Dollard Estuarium) which studied the consequences on the Ems-Dollard ecosystem of the discharge of very large amounts of waste water.  The experience from this modelling project was used by NIOZ to initiate and coordinate an EU-project in the Marine Science and Technology program,1990-1995, where a consortium of marine institutes developed the European Regional Seas Ecosystem Model (ERSEM).
