Starting values should be in numerical format, and should not exceed 6 characters in length. Errors resulting in script termination will occur when values are entered as text rather than in numerical format. Upon encountering such errors it may be necessary to "Refresh" the page.
To disable the "chase" function, enter a TC value which is greater than TS. After entering starting values (inputs), click the Calculate button. Simulated values will then be displayed in the text boxes below the "Calculate" button. The Calculate button can be reused repetitively after modifying input values.
With certain browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer 3.0), the computed values of isotope abundance and pool sizes displayed in the text boxes (lower right frame) are double-precision floating-point (e.g. 0.019995 may be displayed as 1.9995E-02). Thus, it may be necessary to use your mouse to highlight certain text boxes to view the full double-precision floating-point notations for values suspected to be less than 0.1.
