Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

The pore water suction at the point of hydraulic cut-off occurs at the point where the residual water content, obtained from Dexter et al. (2008), intercepts with the Groenevelt & Grant (2004) retention curve. This function calculates the Hydraulic Cut-Off using the point of maximum curvature of the DE (Dexter et al. 2008) curve.

Usage

1
hydraulicCutOff2(theta_R, a1, a2, p1, p2, graph = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

theta_R

the residual water content from Dexter's (2008) water retention curve (g/g).

a1

a water content parameter from Dexter's (2008) water retention curve (g/g).

a2

a water content parameter from Dexter's (2008) water retention curve (g/g).

p1

a matric potential parameter from Dexter's (2008) water retention curve (hPa).

p2

a matric potential parameter from Dexter's (2008) water retention curve (hPa).

graph

logical; if TRUE a graphical solution with the maximum curvature point is displayed.

...

further graphical arguments. See par

Details

The arguments are the fitting parameters from Dexter's (2008) water retention curve, which can be fitted using fitsoilwater3. Further examples of how to use these parameters are given in Dexter et al. (2012).

Value

A data.frame containing the values of matric potential (hPa), pF and water content (w) at the hydraulic cut-off (hco) point.
