View source: R/readBootstrap.R

Description

Function to process monthly bootstrap data over multiple years. The observations are from the monthly sea ice concentration obtained from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) satellites Nimbus-7 SMMR and DMSP SSM/I-SSMIS and processed by the bootstrap algorithm. The results are distributed by the National Snow and Ice Data Center (Comiso 2000, updated 2015). Functions assume file name conventions are the same as used by NSIDC.

Usage

1
readMonthlyBS(startYear, endYear, fileFolder, nX = 304, nY = 448)

Arguments

startYear

first year to read in

endYear

fileFolder

Folder in which binary files are stored

nX

longitude dimension

nY

latitude dimension

Details

Raw binary files for 2012-2013 are included in the package

Value

Bootstrap observations sorted into array of dimension: year x month x lon x lat
