Defining parameters as functions of other parameters

  collapse = TRUE,
  comment = "#>"

In some cases, users may not wish to provide a parameter value, but rather have a value calculated based on other parameters. Currently, the only parameters that can be provided as functions are:

I plan to make more of these in the future, but I'll briefly demonstrate how one would change the T_sky function. The default function from Okajima et al. (2012), which was hard-coded in versions 1.0.0 and 1.0.1, is:


leaf_par   <- make_leafpar()   # leaf parameters
enviro_par <- make_enviropar() # environmental parameters
constants  <- make_constants() # physical constants


Let's change it simply be the air temperature (T_air). The current requirements for this function as of version 1.0.2 are:

enviro_par <- make_enviropar(
  replace = list(T_sky = function(pars) {pars$T_air})

T_leaf <- tleaf(leaf_par, enviro_par, constants, quiet = TRUE)
