Results for 60-day Simulations in top 25m circulation: (a) Zone of
no data/net influence of boundary conditions: Initial Conditions
were O.O everywhere. Inflow boundaries persisted at 1.0. Regions
in dark blue are where direct comparison of simulations to data may
be made without additional assumptions for Scotian Shelf or Slope
water contributions. (b) Result of passive transport (no mortality
or fold-up of lower stages) of JF adults. (c) Result of transport
and 13 stage 'best case scenario' (no mortality, no effect of food,
temperature dependent development rates) population dynamics.
Initial Conditions included no naupliiar stages. (d) Result of
transport and 13 stage first-order approximation to food-limition
(mortality rates vary with Chl-a concentration and temperature
dependent development rates) population dynamics for 60 days.
Initial Conditions included no naupliiar stages. Images (b-d) are
plotted as the log transform (log10(x+1)) of the vertically
integrated total abundance for stages C3-C6.
