About this book

This thesis focuses on the simulation of spatial patterns in aquatic ecosystems. Various modelling approaches are explored to reveal processes and factors contributing to the spatial pattern development at various scales.


1. Introduction;
2. Theoretical Background;
3. Developments in Modelling Paradigms;
4. Harmful Algal Bloom Prediction Using Data-Driven Techniques; 5. Enhancing Physically-Based Algal Dynamics Modelling Using Remote Sensing Images;
6. Spatial Pattern Dynamics in Cellular Automata Based Aquatic Ecosystem Modelling;
7. Revealing Spatial Pattern Dynamics in Aquatic Ecosystem Modelling with Multi-Agent Systems;
8. A Synthesis of Physically-Based Water Quality Modelling and Multi-Agent-Based Population Dynamics Modelling;
9. Conclusions and Recommendations.
