A cation exchange subroutine that can be expanded to
include any number of cations was developed and interfaced
with a water flow-salt transport model that also contained a
lime and gypsum precipitation-dissolution chemistry subroutine.
The exchange subroutine was required by the complete model
to satisfactorily predict EC, SAR, and specific ion concentration
changes with time and depth for a gypsiferous and a nongypsiferous
soil irrigated with waters containing three different
CaSO₄ concentrations at two leaching fractions. In his sudy,
exchangeable Ca, Mg, Na, and K were considered. Exchangeable
K was included for me with high exchangeable and soluble K
soils and high K irrigation waters. The additional cation exchange
coefficient values needed for K exchange and a method
for their calculation is given.
