f_time_norm_focus(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'numeric'
f_time_norm_focus(
  object,
  moisture = NA,
  field_moisture = NA,
  temperature = object,
  Q10 = 2.58,
  walker = 0.7,
  f_na = NA,
  ...
)

## S3 method for class 'mkindsg'
f_time_norm_focus(
  object,
  study_moisture_ref_source = c("auto", "meta", "focus"),
  Q10 = 2.58,
  walker = 0.7,
  f_na = NA,
  ...
)

Arguments

object

An object containing information used for the calculations

...

Currently not used

moisture

Numeric vector of moisture contents in \% w/w

field_moisture

Numeric vector of moisture contents at field capacity (pF2) in \% w/w

temperature

Numeric vector of temperatures in °C

Q10

The Q10 value used for temperature normalisation

walker

The Walker exponent used for moisture normalisation

f_na

The factor to use for NA values. If set to NA, only factors for complete cases will be returned.

study_moisture_ref_source

Source for the reference value used to calculate the study moisture. If 'auto', preference is given to a reference moisture given in the meta information, otherwise the focus soil moisture for the soil class is used
