Modelling advection and diffusion of water isotopologues in leaves

Cuntz, Matthias Oskar; Ogee, Jerome; Peylin, Philippe; Cernusak, Lucas; Farquhar, Graham


We described advection and diffusion of water isotopologues in leaves in the non-steady state, applied specifically to amphistomatous leaves. This explains the isotopic enrichment of leaf water from the xylem to the mesophyll, and we showed how it relates to earlier models of leaf water enrichment in non-steady state. The effective length or tortuosity factor of isotopologue movement in leaves is unknown and, therefore, is a fitted parameter in the model. We compared the advection-diffusion...[Show more]
