RegioGEVSeas: Seasonal regional (or local) parameter and quantile...

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/regional_gev.R

Description

Calculates regional (or local) parameters of a two-component GEV distribution (product of two GEVs) using (trimmed) L-moments (see TLMoments and parameters) from two vectors or two matrices of observation, e.g. winter and summer observations from one or more than one station. Based on these two parameter vectors, a p-quantile of the two-component GEV will be calculated for the jth station.

RegioGEVSeas(x1, x2, p, j = 1, leftrim = 0, rightrim = 0, na.rm = TRUE,
  ...)

Arguments

x1

vector or matrix of observations from season 1 (rows: observations, columns: stations).

x2

vector or matrix of observations from season 2 (rows: observations, columns: stations).

p

a probability.

j

quantile and parameter estimation for the jth station (jth column of x). Irrelevant if is x1 and x2 are vectors.

leftrim

integer indicating lower trimming parameter (≥ 0).

rightrim

integer indicating upper trimming parameter (≥ 0).

na.rm

Should missing values be removed?
