Short summary
A numerical model is presented that explicitly includes spectral irradiance and optically important water constituents. The model captures 3-D biogeochemical, ecosystem, and optical observations, including surface reflectance analogous to ocean colour satellite observations. Sensitivity experiments demonstrate the relative importance of each of the water constituents, and the feedbacks between the light field, fitness of phytoplankton types, and the biogeochemistry of the ocean.
