Description

Calculates the effects of temperature on decomposition rates according to the CENTURY model.

Usage

1
fT.Century1(Temp, Tmax = 45, Topt = 35)

Arguments

Temp

A scalar or vector containing values of temperature for which the effects on decomposition rates are calculated.

Tmax

A scalar defining the maximum temperature in degrees C.

Topt

A scalar defining the optimum temperature for the decomposition process in degrees C.

Value

A scalar or a vector containing the effects of temperature on decomposition rates (unitless).
