Mathematical Modeling of Marine Systems

We propose a method for the construction of the maps of parameters of marine ecosystems based on the adaptation of the space profiles computed by using a model of ecosystem to the data of observations along the trajectories of satellites. To get the adaptive estimates of the fields, we use the differential equations of the method of adaptive balance of causes in which the rates of changes in the parameters are replaced by their spatial derivatives. The method is used for the evaluation of the space distributions of the concentrations of oxygen, phyto- and zooplankton, and other hydrobionts (bioresources) according to the satellite data on the fields of surface temperature and the concentration of chlorophyll in the northwest part of the Black Sea. It is possible to conclude that the proposed approach is quite promising for processing the data of satellite observations.
