ThreepParallelModel {SoilR}

Implementation of a three pool model with parallel structure
Package:
SoilR
Version:
1.1-23

Description

The function creates a model for three independent (parallel) pools. It is a wrapper for the more general function `ParallelModel` that can handle an arbitrary number of pools.

Usage

```ThreepParallelModel(t,
ks, C0, In, gam1, gam2, xi = 1, solver = deSolve.lsoda.wrapper,
pass = FALSE)
```

Arguments

t
A vector containing the points in time where the solution is sought.
ks
A vector of length 3 containing the decomposition rates for the 3 pools.
C0
A vector of length 3 containing the initial amount of carbon for the 3 pools.
In
A scalar or a data.frame object specifying the amount of litter inputs by time.
gam1
A scalar representing the partitioning coefficient, i.e. the proportion from the total amount of inputs that goes to pool 1.
gam2
A scalar representing the partitioning coefficient, i.e. the proportion from the total amount of inputs that goes to pool 2.
xi
A scalar or a data.frame specifying the external (environmental and/or edaphic) effects on decomposition rates.
solver
A function that solves the system of ODEs. This can be `euler` or `ode` or any other user provided function with the same interface.
pass
