Impact model: DBEM

DBEM is one of the 6 global models following the ISIMIP2a protocol which form the base of simulations for the ISIMIP2a global fisheries & marine ecosystems sector outputs; for a full technical description of the ISIMIP2a Simulation Data from Fisheries & Marine Ecosystems (Fish-MIP; global) Sector, see this DOI link:
