mixchar: Mixture Model for the Deconvolution of Thermal Decay Curves

Deconvolution of thermal decay curves allows you to quantify proportions of biomass components in plant litter. Thermal decay curves derived from thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) are imported, modified, and then modelled in a three- or four- part mixture model using the Fraser-Suzuki function. The output is estimates for weights of pseudo-components corresponding to hemicellulose, cellulose, and lignin. For more information see: Müller-Hagedorn, M. and Bockhorn, H.
