Description

Calculates anomalies with respect to the regular phenological cycle using time series (numeric vector) of vegetation greenness.

Usage

1
PhenAnoma(x, dates, h, refp, anop, rge)

Arguments

x

Numeric vector with greenness values

dates

Vector with dates at which the greenness values were recorded

h

Numeric. Indicates the geographic hemisphere to define the starting date of the growing season. h=1 if the vegetation is in the Northern Hemisphere (season starting at January 1st), h=2 if it is in the Southern Hemisphere (season starting at July 1st)

refp

Numeric vector with the correlative number of dates to be used as reference period. For example, refp=c(1:393) for MODIS Vegetation Index 16-days composites (18/02/2000 <e2><80><93> 06/06/2017)

anop

Numeric vector with the correlative number of dates for the period in which the anomalies will be calculated. For example refp=c(21:43) for the first complete year for MODIS Vegetation Index 16-days composites (01/01/2001 <e2><80><93> 19/12/2001). anop y refp can be overlapped

rge

A vector containing minimum and maximum values of the response variable used in the analysis. We suggest the use of theoretically based limits. For example in the case of MODIS NDVI or EVI, it ranges from 0 to 10,000, so rge =c(0,10000)

Details

Calculates phenological anomalies using a numeric vector of vegetation canopy greenness values (e.g. Leaf Area Index, LAI) or satellite based greenness proxies such as the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) or Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI). For this purpose, it divides the time series (numeric vector) of vegetation greeness into 2: the reference period, from which the annual phenological cycle is calculated (same as Phen function), and the observation period, for which we want to calculate anomalies with respect to the annual phenological cycle. Negative anomalies correspond to observed values lower than the reference and positive anomalies to values higher than the reference.

Value

A numeric vector of length = nGS, where each value represents the expected greeness at that date
