Description

Extrapolate air temperature records to another heights. In this package version you can use the classical linear gradient model or a modified version which sets an upper altitudinal threshold air temperature decrement (avoiding unreliable estimations).

Temp_model(
       model,
       inputData,
       zmeteo,
       ztopo,
       param
)

Arguments

model

numeric value with model option:

  • 1: linear air temperature gradient (LT).

  • 2: linear air temperature gradient with an upper threshold (LTM).

inputData

numeric vector with air temperature record series [ºC/Δ t].

zmeteo

numeric value indicating the altitude where the air temperature is recorded [masl].

ztopo

numeric value with the target height [masl].

param

numeric vector with the following parameters:

LT

  • 1: air temperature linear gradient (grad_t) [ºC/km].

LPM

  • 1: air temperature linear gradient (grad_t) [ºC/km].

  • 2: threshold height. Air temperature does not decrease when the altitude (ztopo) is higher than this value [masl].

Value

Numeric vector with the extrapolated air temperature series.

# The following is a toy example. I strongly recommend to see

## simple linear model
airTemp <- Temp_model(
                      model = 1,
                      inputData = runif(200, max = 25, min = -10),
                      zmeteo = 2000, ztopo = 3500, param = c(-6.5)
                      )
