\title{
Creates a One-Dimensional Finite Difference Grid
}
\description{
Subdivides the one-dimensional model domain into one or more zones that
are each sub-divided into grid cells. The resulting grid structure can be
used in the other \code{ReacTran} functions.
The grid structure is characterized by the position of the middle of
the grid cells (\code{x.mid}) and the position of the interfaces between
grid cells (\code{x.int}).
Distances are calculated between the interfaces (\code{dx}), i.e. the
thickness of the grid cells. An auxiliary set of distances (\code{dx.aux})
is calculated between the points where the concentrations are specified
(at the center of each grid cell and the two external interfaces).
A more complex grid consisting of multiple zones can be constructed when
specifying the endpoints of ech zone (\code{x.down}), the interval length
(\code{L}), and the number of layers in each zone (\code{N}) as vectors.
In each zone, one can control the grid resolution near the upstream and
downstream boundary.
The grid resolution at the upstream interface changes according to the
power law relation \code{dx[i+1] = min(max.dx.1,p.dx.1*dx[i])},
where \code{p.dx.1} determines the rate of increase and \code{max.dx.1}
puts an upper limit on the grid cell size.
A similar formula controls the resolution at the downstream interface.
This allows refinement of the grid near the interfaces.

\arguments{
\item{x.up }{position of the upstream interface; one value [L]
}
\item{x.down }{position of the endpoint of each zone; one value when the
model domain covers only one zone (\code{x.down} = position of downstream
interface), or a vector of length M when the model domain is divided into
M zones (\code{x.down[M]} = position of downstream interface) [L]
}
\item{L }{thickness of zones; one value (model domain = one zone) or a
vector of length M (model domain = M zones) [L]
}
\item{N }{number of grid cells within a zone; one value or a vector of
length M [-]
}
\item{dx.1 }{size of the first grid cell in a zone; one value or a vector
of length M [L]
}
\item{p.dx.1 }{power factor controlling the increase in grid cell size near
the upstream boundary; one value or a vector of length M. The default
value is 1 (constant grid cell size) [-]
}
\item{max.dx.1 }{maximum grid cell size in the upstream half of the zone;
one value or a vector of length M [L]
}
\item{dx.N }{size of the last grid cell in a zone; one value or a vector
of length M [L]
}
\item{p.dx.N }{power factor controlling the increase in grid cell size near the
downstream boundary; one value or a vector of length M. The default value
is 1 (constant grid cell size) [-]
}
\item{max.dx.N }{maximum grid cell size in the downstream half of the zone;
one value or a vector of length M [L]
}
\item{x }{the object of class \code{grid.1D} that needs plotting
}
\item{...}{additional arguments passed to the function \link{plot}
}
}
\value{
a list of type \code{grid.1D} containing:
\item{N }{the total number of grid cells [-]

\item{x.down }{position of the downstream interface; one value [L]
}
\item{x.mid }{position of the middle of the grid cells;
vector of length \code{N} [L]
}
\item{x.int }{position of the interfaces of the grid cells;
vector of length \code{N+1} [L]
}
\item{dx }{distance between adjacent cell interfaces (thickness of grid
cells); vector of length \code{N} [L]
}
\item{dx.aux }{auxiliary vector containing the distance between adjacent
cell centers; at the upper and lower boundary calculated as
(\code{x[1]-x.up}) and (\code{x.down-x[N]}) respectively; vector of
length \code{N+1} [L]
