Oxygen in Earth System Models

Oceanic O2 is one of the most challenging biogeochemical variables to be represented in contemporary Ocean General Circulation and Biogeochemical Models (OGCBMs). The occurrence of very low dissolved O2 concentrations, known as Oxygen Minimum Zones, is a combination of stagnated or poorly ventilated areas with a prominent biological activity associated with high rates of O2consumption. This data visualization project has been developed at the Institut Universitaire Europeen de la Mer in Brest, France.
