1-D Volumetric Advective-Diffusive Transport in an Aquatic System
}
\description{
Estimates the volumetric transport term (i.e. the rate of change of the
concentration due to diffusion and advection) in a one-dimensional model of
an aquatic system (river, estuary).
Volumetric transport implies the use of flows (mass per unit of time) rather
than fluxes (mass per unit of area per unit of time) as is done in
\code{\link{tran.1D}}.
The \code{tran.volume.1D} routine is particularly suited for modelling
channels (like rivers, estuaries) where the cross-sectional area changes,
but where this area change needs not to be explicitly modelled as such.
Another difference with \code{tran.1D} is that the present routine also
allows lateral water or lateral mass input (as from side rivers or diffusive lateral ground water inflow).
}
\usage{
tran.volume.1D(C, C.up = C[1], C.down = C[length(C)],
C.lat = C, F.up = NULL, F.down = NULL, F.lat = NULL,
Disp, flow = 0, flow.lat = NULL, AFDW = 1,
V = NULL, full.check = FALSE, full.output = FALSE)
}
\arguments{
\item{C }{tracer concentration, defined at the centre of the grid cells.
A vector of length N [M/L3].
}
\item{C.up }{tracer concentration at the upstream interface. One value [M/L3].
}
\item{C.down }{tracer concentration at downstream interface. One value [M/L3].
}
\item{C.lat }{tracer concentration in the lateral input, defined at
grid cell centres. One value, a vector of length N, or a
list as defined by \code{\link{setup.prop.1D}} [M/L3].
The default is \code{C.lat = C}, (a zero-gradient condition).
Setting \code{C.lat=0}, together with a positive \code{F.lat} will
lead to dilution of the tracer concentration in the
grid cells.
}
\item{F.up }{total tracer input at the upstream interface. One value [M/T].
}
\item{F.down }{total tracer input at downstream interface. One value [M/T].
}
\item{F.lat }{total lateral tracer input, defined at grid cell centres.
One value, a vector of length N, or a 1D list property as defined by \code{\link{setup.prop.1D}},[M/T].
}
\item{Disp }{BULK dispersion coefficient, defined on grid cell interfaces.
One value, a vector of length N+1, or a 1D list property as defined by \code{\link{setup.prop.1D}} [L3/T].
}
\item{flow }{water flow rate, defined on grid cell interfaces. One value, a vector of length N+1,
or a list as defined by \code{\link{setup.prop.1D}} [L3/T].
If \code{flow.lat} is not \code{NULL} the \code{flow} should be one value containing the flow rate at the upstream boundary.
If \code{flow.lat} is not \code{NULL} then \code{flow} must be a vector or a list.
}
\item{flow.lat }{lateral water flow rate [L3/T] into each volume box, defined at grid cell centres. One value, a vector of
length N, or a list as defined by \code{\link{setup.prop.1D}}. If \code{flow.lat} has a value, then
\code{flow} should be the flow rate at the upstream interface (one value).
For each grid cell, the \code{flow} at the downstream side of a grid cell is
then estimated by water balance (adding \code{flow.lat} in the cell to
flow rate at the upstream side of the grid cell). If \code{flow.lat} is \code{NULL}, then it is determined by water balance
from \code{flow}.
}
\item{AFDW }{weight used in the finite difference scheme for advection,
defined on grid cell interfaces; backward = 1, centred = 0.5, forward = 0;
default is backward. One value, a vector of length N+1, or a
list as defined by \code{\link{setup.prop.1D}} [-].
}
\item{V }{grid cell volume, defined at grid cell centres [L3]. One value, a
vector of length N, or a list as defined by \code{\link{setup.prop.1D}}.
}
\item{full.check }{logical flag enabling a full check of the consistency
of the arguments (default = \code{FALSE}; \code{TRUE} slows down execution
by 50 percent).
}
\item{full.output }{logical flag enabling a full return of the output
(default = \code{FALSE}; \code{TRUE} slows down execution by 20 percent).
}
}
\value{
\item{dC }{the rate of change of the concentration C due to transport,
defined in the centre of each grid cell [M/L3/T].
}
\item{F.up }{mass flow across the upstream boundary, positive = INTO
model domain. One value [M/T].
}
\item{F.down }{mass flow across the downstream boundary, positive = OUT
of model domain. One value [M/T].
}
\item{F.lat }{lateral mass input per volume box, positive = INTO model
domain. A vector of length N [M/T].
}
\item{flow }{water flow across the interface of each grid cell. A vector
of length N+1 [L3/T]. Only provided when (\code{full.output} = \code{TRUE}
}
\item{flow.up }{water flow across the upstream (external) boundary, positive = INTO
model domain. One value [L3/T]. Only provided when (\code{full.output} = \code{TRUE})
}
\item{flow.down }{water flow across the downstream (external) boundary, positive = OUT
of model domain. One value [L3/T]. Only provided when
(\code{full.output} = \code{TRUE})
}
\item{flow.lat }{lateral water input on each volume box, positive = INTO model
domain. A vector of length N [L3/T]. Only provided when
(\code{full.output} = \code{TRUE})
}
\item{F }{mass flow across at the interface of each grid cell. A vector
of length N+1 [M/T]. Only provided when (\code{full.output} = \code{TRUE})

\details{
The \bold{boundary conditions} are of type
\itemize{
\item 1. zero-gradient (default)
\item 2. fixed concentration
\item 3. fixed input
}
The \emph{bulk dispersion coefficient} (\code{Disp}) and the \emph{flow rate}
(\code{flow}) can be either one value or a vector of length N+1, defined at
all grid cell interfaces, including upstream and downstream boundary.
The spatial discretisation is given by the volume of each box (\code{V}),
which can be one value or a vector of length N+1, defined at the centre of
each grid cell.
The water flow is mass conservative. Over each volume box, the routine
calculates internally the downstream outflow of water in terms of the
upstream inflow and the lateral inflow.
