Biophysical models simulate dispersal and connectivity in marine environments by combining numerical models that represent water circulation with biological parameters that define the attributes of species. The effects of parameters on model outputs, such as the number of particles released to simulate the trajectories of individual organisms, is potentially large but is rarely tested. In this study, we develop a framework to measure the optimal number of particles required to capture variability in dispersal and...
