accumulateDepths(
  x,
  id = NULL,
  hzdepths = NULL,
  hzname = NULL,
  hzdatum = 0,
  seqnum = NULL,
  pattern = "O",
  fix = TRUE
)

Arguments

x

A data.frame or SoilProfileCollection

id

unique profile ID. Default: NULL, if x is a SoilProfileCollection idname(x)

hzdepths

character vector containing horizon top and bottom depth column names. Default: NULL, if x is a SoilProfileCollection horizonDepths(x)

hzname

character vector containing horizon designation or other label column names. Default: NULL, if x is a SoilProfileCollection hzdesgnname(x)

hzdatum

a numeric vector to add to accumulated depths. Default: 0. Can be equal in length to number of profiles if x is a SoilProfileCollection or number of (unique) IDs if x is a data.frame.

seqnum

Optional: character vector containing record "sequence number" column name; used in-lieu of hzname (when NA) to identify "first" record in a profile

pattern

pattern to search for in hzname to identify matching horizons to append the profile to

fix

apply adjustments to missing (NA) depths and expand 0-thickness horizons? Default: TRUE

Details

The "depth accumulation" method calculates thicknesses of individual horizons and then cumulative sums them after putting them in id + top depth order. The routine tries to determine context based on hzname and pattern. The main transformation is if a top depth is deeper than the bottom depth, the depths are reflected on the Z-axis (made negative). The data are then id + top depth sorted again, the thickness calculated and accumulated to replace the old depths.

This function uses several heuristics to adjust data before transformation and thickness calculation:

Regex matching of horizon designation patterns and similar

Over-ride hzname handling with the sequence column argument seqnum

Trigger "fixing" with the fix argument:

Value

A horizon-level data.frame, suitable for promoting to SPC with depths<-, or a SoilProfileCollection, depending on the class of x.
