threshold_percentile_plot(swmpr_in, ...)

## S3 method for class 'swmpr'
threshold_percentile_plot(
  swmpr_in,
  param = NULL,
  hist_rng = NULL,
  target_yr = NULL,
  percentiles = c(0.05, 0.95),
  free_y = FALSE,
  by_month = FALSE,
  log_trans = FALSE,
  converted = FALSE,
  plot_title = FALSE,
  ...
)

Arguments

swmpr_in

input swmpr object

...

additional arguments passed to other methods (not used for this function).

param

chr, variable to plot

hist_rng

num, years to include in the plot. This variable can either be one year (e.g., hist_rng = 2012), or two years (e.g. hist_rng = c(2012, 2016)) , If range is not specified then the entire data set will be used.

target_yr

num, year of interest for plotting. If not specified, the entire data set will be plotted.

percentiles

num, percentiles to calculate (maximum: 2). Defaults to 5th and 95th percentiles.

free_y

logical, should the y-axis be free? Defaults to FALSE. If FALSE, defaults to zero, unless negative values are present. If TRUE, y-axis limits are selected by ggplot

by_month

logical. should percentiles be calculated on a monthly basis? Defaults to FALSE

log_trans

logical, should y-axis be log? Defaults to FALSE

converted

logical, were the units converted from the original units used by CDMO? Defaults to FALSE. See y_labeler for details.

plot_title

logical, should the station name be included as the plot title? Defaults to FALSE

Details

This function provides an alternative to threshold_criteria_plot. For parameters that may not have numeric threshold criteria, a percentile threshold can be used instead. For a one-tailed analysis, the 90-th percentile is recommended. For a two-tailed analysis, the 5-th and 95-th percentiles are recommended.

Using by_month, the user can specify whether the percentiles should be calculated on a monthly basis or by using the entire data set.

Recommended thresholds for chlorophyll-a, dissolved inorganic nitrogen, dissolved inorganic phosphorus, and dissolved oxygen can be found in the National Coastal Condition Assessment 2010 (USEPA 2016)

Value

Returns a ggplot object
