Abstract

Abstract The aim of this paper is to study a mathematical model describing the circulation of nitrogenous compounds in an aquatic environment under aerobic conditions, described in the treatises of Leonov and of Leonov and Tóth. On the basis of experimental data determined under conditions with and without light access, the coefficients K 1, …, K 4 are estimated. which express the maximum substrate uptake by living organisms. It is shown that the mathematical model for the estimated coefficients K 1, …, K 4 reflects both the qualitative and the quantitative disparities in the behaviour of the experimental system under conditions with and without light access.
