Science / Modules

The AED2 modules cover most aquatic biogeochemical processes including nutrient cycling, oxygen dynamics, sediment/soil biogeochemistry, vegetation, etc. Each module can work alone or combined with other modules, depending on the complexity of targeted system.

AED2 core modules
TRC TRC: Tracers, Suspended Soilds and Retention Time Modellers can use the aed_tracer to simulate a dissolved or particulate tracer, that can be subject to decay, sedimentation and resuspension. This module also include an option to simulate water retention time where the water age increments once enters into the waterbody
OXY OXY: Dissolved Oxygen DO dynamics account for atmospheric exchange, sediment oxygen demand, microbial use during organic matter mineralisation and nitrification, photosynthetic oxygen production and respiratory oxygen consumption, and respiration by other optional biotic components
NUT NUT: Inorganic Nutrients
OGM OGM: Organic Matter
PHY PHY: Phytoplankton Highly customisable phytoplankton module for simulating change in algae, cyano-bacteria and chl-a, including phytoplankton production/respiration, nutrient uptake, excretion, vertical movement, and grazing
ZOO ZOO: Zooplankton Simulate different soze classes of zooplankton, accounting for carbon and nutrient assimilation from grazing, carbon loss via respiration, excretion of DOM, faecal pellet production, mortality, and predation by larger organisms
TOT TOT: Totals
SDF SDF: Sediment Flux
AED2+ water quality modules
SDG SDG: Sediment Biogeochemistry Vertically resolved sediment diagenesis model for simulation of vertical profiles of sediment geochemical conditions and associated fluxes to the water column
GEO GEO: Aqueous Geochemistry Aqueous geochemical model for simulating major ions, metals, pH, acidity/alkalinity and mineral precipitaiton/dissolution
ISO ISO: Stable Isotopes
PTH PTH: Pathogens
AED2+ benthic biology modules
MAC MAC: Benthic macrophytes
MAG MAG: Macroalgae
BIV BIV: Bivalves
HAB HAB: Habitat Quality
AED2+ riparian ecohydrology modules
LND LND: Land & Soil Hydrology
SBG SBG: Soil Biogeochemistry
VEG VEG: Riparian Vegetation
ASS ASS: Acid Sulfate Soils
