Short summary
In this study, we present a coupled physical–biogeochemical model, in which the acclimation of autotrophs to their resource environment is resolved based on optimality arguments. The model is implemented in the southern North Sea, a shallow coastal system. Based on comparisons with multiple data sources, we show that the model can reproduce the variability in the system for the period 2000–2010 and analyze the mechanisms driving the large-scale, persistent coastal gradients in the system.
