#' @keywords ws_monitor
#' @export
#' @title Subset ws_monitor Object
#' @param ws_monitor \emph{ws_monitor} object
#' @param xlim optional vector with low and high longitude limits
#' @param ylim optional vector with low and high latitude limits
#' @param tlim optional vector with start and end times (integer or character representing YYYYMMDD[HH] or \code{POSIXct})
#' @param vlim optional vector with low and high data value limits
#' @param monitorIDs optional vector of monitor IDs used to filter the data
#' @param stateCodes optional vector of state codes used to filter the data
#' @param countryCodes optional vector of country codes used to filter the data
#' @param dropMonitors flag specifying whether to remove monitors with no data
#' @param timezone Olson timezone passed to \code{\link[MazamaCoreUtils]{parseDatetime}} when parsing numeric \code{tlim}
#' @return A \emph{ws_monitor} object with a subset of \code{ws_monitor}.
#' @description Creates a subset \emph{ws_monitor} based on one or more optional input parameters.
#' If any input parameter is not specified, that parameter will not be used to subset \code{ws_monitor}.
#' @details By default, this function will return a \emph{ws_monitor} object whose \code{data} dataframe has the
#' same number of columns as the incoming dataframe, unless any of the columns consist of all \code{NA}s,
#' in which case such columns will be removed (\emph{e.g.} if there are no valid data for a specific monitor
#' after subsetting by \code{tlim} or \code{vlim}).
#'If \code{dropMonitors=FALSE}, columns that consist of all \code{NA}s will be retained.
#' @examples
