`t` |
A vector containing the points in time where the solution is sought. |

`ks` |
A vector of lenght 5 containing the values of the decomposition rates for the different pools. Units in per week. |

`C0` |
A vector of length 5 containing the initial amount of carbon for the 5 pools. |

`In` |
A scalar or data.frame object specifying the amount of litter inputs by time (mass per area per week). |

`LN` |
A scalar representing the lignin to nitrogen ratio of the plant residue inputs. |

`Ls` |
A scalar representing the fraction of structural material that is lignin. |

`clay` |
Proportion of clay in mineral soil. |

`silt` |
Proportion of silt in mineral soil. |

`xi` |
A scalar or data.frame object specifying the external (environmental and/or edaphic) effects on decomposition rates. |

`solver` |
A function that solves the system of ODEs. This can be |
