Long-term dynamics of at 7 stations in the southern North Sea.
The stations are ordered according to the distance to the coast with the most offshore station (Noordwijk-70) at the top. Compiled measurements (gray crosses) are compared to the reference run (orange line) and the run with spatially uniform carnivory (green line). This scenario is only plotted until end of 2011 for better visibility. Normalized bias B and correlation coefficient ρ of the model–data comparison are added in the color of the respective scenario.
