During the last 20 years, chemistry of atmosphere has advanced with the development of the weather forecasting systems. Today, the biochemistry is booming thanks to new systems like Mercator Ocean systems. Biochemistry modeling is modeling of the living, and that’s not a trivial operation.
One day, these models will be able to forecast biochemistry variables (phytoplancton concentration, primary productivity…) as physical variables (temperature, salinity…).
Mercator Ocean is a partner of a project called Mercator Vert (Green Mercator): Mercator Ocean products are coupled with biogeochemistry models.
