I am modelling the algae bloom and dissolved oxygen in a lake. I
searched though the PLCT but failed to find the way to link the algae
growth and the oxygen production. Could any one told me how to
achieve this and point the substance and related processes should be
If you use the BLOOM approach, then selecting dissolved oxygen as a
model substance and selecting the process "BLOOM II alglae
module" is essentially enough to turn on primary production by
algae and the production of dissolved oxygen as a result. Several
other processes are required to really turn it on, but if you inspect
the list of fluxes (the way a process influences a substance), you
should see "uptake of carbon by algae growth (dPrProdOxy)".
This flux is used to calculate how much organic carbon is formed but
also how much dissolved oxygen is produced, as these two go hand in hand.
