Short summary
We present a redesign and further development of a complex and well-known aquatic ecosystem model (PCLake) into the Framework for Aquatic Biogeochemical Models (FABM). So PCLake can run in different hydrodynamic environments, ranging from 0-D to 3-D. We introduce the methods and technical details about how the model was re-designed into a modular structure and the new features of PCLake enabled by FABM. We further present a benchmark test case to verify the new model implementation.
