Workshop Organization

The workshop began with overview presentations that were intended to introduce some of the issues that might need to be considered to advance the development of biological and coupled biological-physical models in ocean ecosystems. Participants then broke into working groups to discuss: 1) animal behavior, specifically why and how it should be incorporated into models; 2) issues related to integration of models across scales; and, 3) structural aspects of models. Early in the workshop, the participants completed a questionnaire that was designed to stimulate and focus the discussion of secondary production modeling.
