Ten-year simulations of organic matter concentrations in tropical aquaculture ponds using the multiple pool modeling approach uri icon


  • The accumulation rate of organic matter has been used to develop guidelines on sediment management in tropical aquaculture ponds. However, there is conflicting evidence as to the rate of sediment organic matter accumulation and whether steady state concentrations are achieved in the short term (10 years) in aquaculture ponds. A simulation study using the multiple pool modeling approach (Multi-G model) was conducted to determine the longterm dynamics of sediment organic matter and to establish whether steady state concentrations could be achieved in tropical aquaculture ponds
