Flow Duration Curve

Share:

Description

Plots the flow duration curve for a given lfobj.

Usage

1
2
3
fdc(lfobj, year = "any", breakdays = NULL, colors = TRUE, 
    xnorm = FALSE, ylog = TRUE, legend = TRUE, separate = FALSE, 
    ...)

Arguments

lfobj

An object of class "lfobj"

year

numeric - The year for which the fdc should be computed. If hyearstart != 1 the BFI is calculated for the hydrological year! "any" means the whole series should be taken.

breakdays

A vector of breakdays if the BFI should be calculated for different seasons.

colors

logical - If breakdays are specified, should the different fdcs are displayed in different colors?

xnorm

logical - should the x-axis be normalized?

ylog

logical - The the logarithm of the y-axis?

legend

logical - Should a legend be plotted?

separate

logical - Should a separate plot be drawn for every season?

...

Graphical parameters handed to plot

Details

If breakdays is a single day, e.g. "01/06", the start of the hydrological year is taken as the second breakday. If more than two seasons are to be specified, a vector of all breakdays is needed.

Value

A vector of quantiles.
