SURFACE_COMPLEXATION_RXN

Specifies parameters for a surface complexation reaction.

Required Cards:

SURFACE_COMPLEXATION_RXN
Opens the block.

Optional Cards:

EQUILIBRIUM
Specifies equilibrium kinetic sorption.
MULTIRATE_KINETIC
Specifies multirate kinetic sorption. Requires RATES and SITE_FRACTION cards.
KINETIC
Specifies kinetic sorption.
COMPLEX_KINETICS
Opens a block specifying forward and backward rate constants.
RATES <float … float>
Toggles on multirate kinetic sorption. Specifies kinetic rates associated with SITE_FRACTIONs. The number of RATES must match the number of SITE_FRACTIONs.
SITE_FRACTION <float … float>
Specifies site fractions associated with RATES for multirate kinetic sorption. The number of SITE_FRACTIONs must match the number of RATES.
MINERAL <string>
The name of the mineral with which the sorption site density is associated (required, but not yet linked to site density).
MULTIRATE_SCALE_FACTOR <float>
Floating point number that scales all rate constants for multirate kinetic sorption.
COLLOID <string>
Name of the colloid associated with surface complexation reaction.
ROCK_DENSITY
A flag which allows the calculation of surface site concentration based on rock density [i.e. (1-porosity)*soil_particle_density].
SITE <string> <float>
Name of site and site density [mol/m3].
COMPLEXES
Opens a block listing the names of surface complexes associated with the surface complexation reaction and the surface site. These are provided by the database file.
