divdpm: Divide by days per month.

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/divdpm.R

Description

This function divides each timestep of a time series by the number of days of the corresponding month. This can be useful to convert units, such as millimeters (mm) to monthly millimeters per day (mm/d). Leap-years are included.

Usage

1
divdpm(var, infile, outfile, nc34 = 4, overwrite = FALSE, verbose = FALSE)

Arguments

var

Name of NetCDF variable (character).

infile

Filename of input NetCDF file. This may include the directory (character).

outfile

Filename of output NetCDF file. This may include the directory (character).

nc34

NetCDF version of output file. If nc34 = 3 the output file will be in NetCDFv3 format (numeric). Default output is NetCDFv4.

overwrite

logical; should existing output file be overwritten?

verbose

logical; if TRUE, progress messages are shown

Value

A NetCDF file including a time series of the length of infile is written.

## create some (non-realistic) example data

## create example NetCDF
