Detailed Description

A simple litter system model using the euler method. Carbon storage C is calculated in dependency of litter fall rate (Cinput) and rate constant for litter loss (Closs) as:C(t + 1) = C(t) + (Cinput - Closs * C(t)) * dtTypical values:- Tropical Rainforest:-- Litter fall rate: 500 [g/m2/a]-- Litter loss rate: 2.0 [1/a]- Temperate forest:-- Litter fall rate: 240 [g/m2/a]-- Litter loss rate: 0.4 [1/a]- Boreal forest:-- Litter fall rate: 50 [g/m2/a]-- Litter loss rate: 0.05 [1/a]Reference:Hugget, R.J. (1993): 'Modelling the Human Impact on Nature', Oxford University Press.
