Description

This function implements the microbial model Bacwave (bacterial waves), a two-pool model with a bacterial and a substrate pool. It is a special case of the general nonlinear model.

bacwaveModel(t, umax = 0.063, ks = 3, theta = 0.23, Dmax = 0.26, 
    kd = 14.5, kr = 0.4, Y = 0.44, ival = c(S0 = 0.5, X0 = 1.5), 
    BGF = 0.15, ExuM = 8, ExuT = 0.8)

Arguments

t

vector of times (in hours) to calculate a solution.

umax

a scalar representing the maximal relative growth rate of bacteria (hr-1)

ks

a scalar representing the substrate constant for growth (ug C /ml soil solution)

theta

a scalar representing soil water content (ml solution/cm3 soil)

Dmax

a scalar representing the maximal relative death rate of bacteria (hr-1)

kd

a scalar representing the substrate constant for death of bacteria (ug C/ml soil solution)

kr

a scalar representing the fraction of death biomass recycling to substrate (unitless)

Y

a scalar representing the yield coefficient for bacteria (ug C/ugC)

ival

a vector of length 2 with the initial values for the substrate and the bacterial pools (ug C/cm3)

BGF

a scalar representing the constant background flux of substrate (ug C/cm3 soil/hr)

ExuM

a scalar representing the maximal exudation rate (ug C/(hr cm3 soil))

ExuT

a scalar representing the time constant for exudation, responsible for duration of exudation (1/hr).

Details

This implementation containts default parameters presented in Zelenev et al. (2000). It produces nonlinear damped oscillations in the form of a stable focus.

Value

An object of class NlModel that can be further queried.
