Estimate carbonate chemistry after a flush

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.

Usage

2
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.
