Abstract

MOTOR is a MOdule describing the Transformation of Organic matteR and nutrients in soil. It calculates the transformations between pools of organic matter and mineral nitrogen in soil. Pools are characterized by a carbon and nitrogen content and can be labelled. MOTOR is a flexible tool because the pools are not fixed. They are specified, together with a list of transformations and additions, in a datafile. This user guide and technical documentation distinguishes two versions of the program. The stand-alone version of MOTOR is most suitable for evaluating laboratory experiments. The second version of MOTOR is coupled to the model FUSSIM2, this simulation model calculates water movement, solute transport and root uptake.
