Ocean biogeochemistry has a large effect on marine biogeochemical tracer distribution, comparable to that of circulation. However, the exact form of many biogeochemical processes, and therefore their parameterisation in global models, is not well known. Using the "Transport Matrix Method" (Khatiwala et al., 2005) as an offline tool to quickly equilibrate global coupled ocean biogeochemical models, we carry out sensitivity analyses to assess the skill of different biogeochemical, physical, and numerical setups. The ultimate aim is to find the "best" (with respect to metrics tailored for specific research questions) biogeochemical model, that may eventually be integrated into e.g. high-resolution models,or models that simulate transient scenarios.
