Carbon flux matrix of the Gulf of Riga planktonic food web in autumn as reconstructed by inverse modelling by Donali et al. (1999).
The Gulf of Riga is a highly eutrophic system in the Baltic Sea.
The foodweb comprises 7 functional compartments:
heterotrophic nanoflagellates (N)
detritus, including virus (D)
dissolved organic carbon (DOC)
and two external compartments:
These compartments are connected with 26 flows.
Units of the flows are mg C/m3/day.
matrix with flow values, where element ij denotes flow from compartment i to j
rownames and columnames are the components.
