Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A weight-structured population model is described for Calanus finmarchicus. Results are presented for an area of the northern North Sea for which detailed stage succession data exist, and are discussed in the context of other models of zooplankton population dynamics for that area. The essential simplicity of the model enables embedding in a three-dimensional hydrodynamic scheme representing the northern North Sea (1° × 1° boxes, split into upper 30 m and below). Results of this spatially-resolved model are discussed in the context of a new statistical analysis of C. finmarchicus late-copepodites from the continuous plankton recorder.
