Description

Calculate oxygen mass transfer coefficient using equations in Thiebault et al. 2008. Output is used to estimate the volumetric reaeration coefficient for ecosystem metabolism.

Usage

1
calckl(temp, sal, atemp, wspd, bp, height = 10)

Arguments

temp

numeric for water temperature (C)

sal

numeric for salinity (ppt)

atemp

numeric for air temperature (C)

wspd

numeric for wind speed (m/s)

bp

numeric for barometric pressure (mb)

height

numeric for height of anemometer (meters)

Details

This function is used within the ecometab function and should not be used explicitly.

Value

Returns numeric value for oxygen mass transfer coefficient (m d-1).
