Edit algae parameterization in BLOOM

Hello everyone,

I have a question regarding the algae light efficiency parameterization in the bloom.spe file. I have some data from a publication of a P/I curve of Planktothrix and want to compare these values with the values used in BLOOM, but I don't know how. If I get it right, in the bloom.spe file are the irradiation values (negative log) and the corresponding function value and its derivative for every algae group. So my question is, how is this function value calculated? How can I obtain values from my P/I curve that are comparable with the values in bloom.spe?

Thanks a lot!

Best regards
Stefan

Ok I figured it out. The subroutine in bleffpro.f does exactly what I want.

Sorry I didn't help you out earlier, but great that you have found it. Attached is an example of the new style 2.0 spe-file.
