flush_carb: Estimate carbonate chemistry after a flush

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Given the seawater pH inside the respirometer and in the flush reservoir, the new carbonate parameters (including pH) in the respirometer after the flush are estimated.

flush_carb(resp_vol, flow_rate, duration, resp_pH, flush_pH, temp = 25,
  sal = 35, TA = NULL, atm_pres = 1013.25)

Arguments

resp_vol

volume of the respirometer (liter).

flow_rate

rate of water flow into the respirometer (liters / minute).

duration

duration of the flush (minutes).

resp_pH

pH inside the respirometer before the flush (total scale).

flush_pH

pH of the water used for flushing the respirometer (total scale).

temp

temperature (°C). Default is 25 °C.

sal

salinity (psu). Default is 35 psu. If sal < 26 psu, then TA must be provided.

TA

(optional) total alkalinity (umol / kg). If undefined TA is estimated from salinity using guess_TA.

atm_pres

atmospheric pressure (mbar). Default is 1013.25 mbar.

Value

A data frame returned by carb.
