Jonathan Beecham | Cefas

Area of Experise: Model Developer (Higher/Lower Trophic level) and model linking/metada processing expert.

Summary of experience | Jonathan worked on the MEECE project developing real time coupling between lower and higher trophic level models using a library that processes metadata using an xml parsing library (couplerlib). This has been used to link the GOTM-ERSEM model to Ecosim models. In OPEC the basic concept will be extended to short term forecasts and hindcasts in the North East Atlantic area, focusing on pelagic systems. The critical area will be forecasts for recruitment and survival for small pelagic (Herring and Sand eels).
