Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

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

Usage

1
fT.Standcarb(Temp, Topt = 45, Tlag = 4, Tshape = 15, Q10 = 2)

Arguments

Temp

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

Topt

A scalar representing the optimum temperature for decomposition.

Tlag

A scalar that determines the lag of the response curve.

Tshape

A scalar that determines the shape of the response curve.

Q10

A scalar. Temperature coefficient Q10.

Value

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