Description

Simple dynamic model of soil carbon content, with a time step of one year. The equations that describe the dynamics of this system are adapted from the Henin-Dupuis model described in Jones et al. (2004). The soil carbon content is represented by a single state variable: the mass of carbon per unit land area in the top 20 cm of soil in a given year (Z, kg.ha-1). It is assumed that soil C is known in some year, taken as the initial year. The yearly change in soil C is the difference between input from crop biomass and loss.

Usage
