Model Validation
We used field-measured light and temperature data as MBGC inputs. These data were collected from the field pond 4 near 5 from salt-evaporation ponds of the Exportadora de Sal, Guerrero Negro, Baja California Sur, Mexico in June 2001.
Temperature and Light Data
Radiation and temperature data collected June 4-5 (solid lines), and October 10-11 (dotted lines), 2001 at Exportadora del Sal, Guerrero Negro, BCS, Mexico, and used as environmental inputs to MBGC.
Then we ran MBGC and plotted the DIC, sulfide, and O2 results against data from the Guerrero Negro mats collected June 2001.
