Description

The function finds such scale parameter of the Weibull distribution that yields the given mean/median diameter. Function scaleDMean is used for arithmetic mean, scaleDGMean for the mean of basal-area weighted distribution, scaleDMed for median and scaleDGMed for the median of the basal-area weighted diameter distribution. Functions with number 1 in the name use Weibull functions as the unweighted density and functions with value 2 in the name use Weibull function as the basal-area weighted density.

The functions are used in the recovery of Weibull parameters using function recweib.
