Diat-HadOCC model

The Diat-HadOCC model is a development of the HadOCC model which includes two phytoplankton classes (diatoms and 'other phytoplankton') and representations of the silicate and dissolved iron cycles, as well as a DMS (dimethyl sulphide) sub-model (for cloud feedbacks). The model is the ocean biogeochemistry component of HadGEM2-ES, the Met Office's Earth System model which has been used to run simulations for CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project).
