1 GLeon Ad hoc Mendota Modeling Researchers Tim Kratz, Paul Hanson, David Hamilton, Matt Hipsey, Evelyn Gaiser, Trina McMahon, David Motta Marques, Stefan Bertilsson, Chin Wu, Todd Miller, Kevin Rose, Yvonne Hseih, Emily Kara, Lucas Beversdorf, Luke Winslow, Cayelan CareyGLAMMRGLeon Ad hoc Mendota Modeling Researchers
3 TimelineJuly 2009: Diverse group of modelers, physical limnologists, ecologists, and microbiologists descend on Trout Lake Station for one week5 days later…. Mendota is modeledFall 2009: calibrate, validate, and explore science questions
4 DYRESM CAEDYM ELCOM CAEDYM DYRESM (1D) or ELCOM (3D) with CAEDYM2008 GLEON meteorological and water quality driver dataNTL LTER chemical and biological dataUSGSDYRESM is a 1D hydrodynamic model predicting temperature, salinity and density- computational requirements modestELCOM is a 3d hydrodynamic model
6 Science QuestionsWhat are the primary controls on cyanobacterial bloom dynamics?Which features of model output can inform our understanding of microbial community dynamics?Emergent properties of the model?
7 More Questions… Lake-wide responses to long-term climate change How will trophic cascade respond to fluctuations in climate?Are lakes Ahrrenius?Metabolic theory of ecology?System level feedbacks might make the ecosystem behave differently than we expect?Toxin genes related to stoichiometryToxin genes related to toxin concentration
