Description

convert vom mumol CO2 / second to g C / day

Usage

1
convert_mumolPers_to_gPerday(flux, molarMass = 12.011)

Arguments

flux

numeric vector or array: flux

molarMass

numeric scalar: the molar mass of the element of interest (default carbon) in g/mol

Details

Concentration measures are usually given by micromol CO2 across several seconds, and the flux, i.e. its slope hence given in micromol CO2 per second. To compare carbon balances, the units of gC per day are more convenient.

mumol are converted to mol by /1e6 mol are converted to gC by *12.011 per second are converted to per day by *3600*24

In order to convert masses of other elements, specify the molarMass argument, e.g. for converting mol H2O per second to H2O per day, specify molarMass=2*1.008+15.999.

Value

numeric vector of flux in other units
