In this paper, seaweed cultivation is mathematically modelled. The potential use of the crop to consume by-products from ethanol production is considered with a feasibility study and simple financial model. The growth of seaweed is described using differential equations and considering various factors such as solar radiation.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
