ClimateMachine.Land.SoilHeatParameterizations.k_solidFunction
function k_solid(
ν_ss_om::FT,
ν_ss_quartz::FT,
κ_quartz::FT,
κ_minerals::FT,
κ_om::FT,
) where {FT}

Computes the thermal conductivity of the solid material in soil. The _ss_ subscript denotes that the volumetric fractions of the soil components are referred to the soil solid components, not including the pore space.
