Short summary
The paper covers the description of a 3-D open-source model that dynamically couples the biophysical interactions between submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV), hydrodynamics (currents, waves), sediment dynamics, and nutrient loading. Based on SAV growth model, SAV can use growth or dieback while contributing and sequestering nutrients from the water column (modifying the biological environment) and subsequently affect the hydrodynamics and sediment transport (modifying the physical environment).
