  • Integrated modelling framework
    the marine environment The modeling framework simulates selected aspects of the marine biosphere in three dimensions of space and in time with a focus on fish and plankton populations It is designed to predict realistic potential impacts of oil spill scenarios and to perform comparative evaluations of risks and benefits for a selection of activities SYMBIOSES is a modular system to allow connection of a suite of modeling components using a plug play approach The design facilitates replacement of existing or inclusion of new models to the framework over time A first version of SYMBIOSES will be running on the Norwegian National Supercomputer node NOTUR at the University of Tromsø in 2014 In subsequent years the system will be tuned and optimised with new field and laboratory results Fishing and petroleum activities are introduced into the model in similar ways allowing for comparison of the risks and benefits for different environmental outcomes The system generates a range of outputs from water current fields and plankton distributions to toxicological endpoints and effects to fisheries parameters Ecotoxicology The spread of chemical components in the marine environment is simulated using the model FATES a component of the SINTEF Marine Environmental Modeling Workbench Individual
