Temporal autocorrelation in modeling soil potentially mineralizable nitrogen
MetadataShow full item record
In this simulation study, the precision and accuracy of two different methods for modeling net nitrogen mineralization data have been compared. Method 1 represents one traditional approach found in the soil science literature that does not account for the temporal autocorrelation present in the data. Method 2, based on the recent advancements in methods and software for nonlinear mixed effects models that account for this autocorrelation, has proven to be more precise than the traditional approach under a variety of different scenarios.
