Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Calculates the effects of volumetric water content on decomposition rates according to the Daycent/Century models.

Usage

1
fW.Daycent2(W, WP = 0, FC = 100)

Arguments

W

A scalar or vector of volumetric water content in percentage.

WP

A scalar representing the wilting point in percentage.

FC

A scalar representing the field capacity in percentage.

Value

A data frame with values of relative water content (RWC) and the effects of RWC on decomposition rates (fRWC).
