Parameters:


Name of fPAR raster map

Name of light use efficiency raster map (UZB:cotton=1.9)

Name of degree latitude raster map [dd.ddd]

Name of Day of Year raster map [1-366]

Name of single-way transmissivity raster map [0.0-1.0]

Value of water availability raster map [0.0-1.0]

Name for output daily biomass growth raster map [kg/ha/d]

DESCRIPTION

i.biomass calculates the biomass growth for a day after [1][2]. Input:

  • fPAR, the modified Photosynthetic Active Radiation for crops.
  • Light Use Efficiency [0.0-1.0], in Uzbekistan cotton is at 1.9 most of the time.
  • Latitude [0.0-90.0], from r.latlong.
  • DOY [1-366].
  • Transmissivity of the atmosphere single-way [0.0-1.0], mostly around 0.7+ in clear sky.
  • Water availability [0.0-1.0], possibly using direct output from i.eb.evapfr.

NOTES

i.biomass can use the output of i.eb.evapfr directly as water availability input.

TODO

Remove Latitude, DOY and Tsw from input and replace with a raster input compatible with r.sun output.

SEE ALSO

i.eb.evapfr, r.latlong, r.sun
