REN Ling,YANG Jun. NITROGEN NUTRIENTS CYCLING IN MARINE ENVIRONMENT AND ITS MODELING RESEARCH[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2000, 15(1): 58-64.
As an important nutrient element, nitrogen nutrient cycling is essential for the marine ecosystem research. It was the limited nutrient element for phytoplankton in most area in the past twenty years. Studies on nitrogen cycling in marine environment steps with the development of the analytical techniques and the knowledge of biological oceanography. Simulated modeling is one of the useful methods for studying marine ecosystem, describing ecological processes by methmatic equations. Various of models with various purposes were developed during the past fifty years. Advances in studies on nitrogen cycling processes including: phytoplankton uptake, nitrogen regeneration, transformation and interaction between pelagic and sediment, as well as relative simulated models are reviewed in this paper.
