Short summary
Neither the Michaelis-Menten kinetics nor the reverse Michaelis-Menten kinetics is a consistent approximation to the formulation of law of mass action. The ECA kinetics better approximates the exact solution obtained from the law of mass action and the total quasi-steady-state approximation. The ECA kinetics outperformed the MM kinetics and RMM kinetics in predicting the kinetic parametric sensitivity. The ECA kinetics is therefore expected to improve all soil biogeochemical models.
