fT.Century2(Temp, Tmax = 45, Topt = 35)
``` |

`Temp` |
A scalar or vector containing values of temperature for which the effects on decomposition rates are calculated. |

`Tmax` |
A scalar defining the maximum temperature in degrees C. |

`Topt` |
A scalar defining the optimum temperature for the decomposition process in degrees C. |

A scalar or a vector containing the effects of temperature on decomposition rates (unitless).
