insert_hinges: Insert wavelength values into spectral data.

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Examples

View source: R/insert.hinges.R

Description

Inserting wavelengths values immediately before and after a discontinuity in the SWF, greatly reduces the errors caused by interpolating the weighted irradiance during integration of the effective spectral irradiance. This is specially true when data have a large wavelength step size.

Usage

1
insert_hinges(x, y, h)

Arguments

x

numeric array (sorted in increasing order)

y

numeric array

h

a numeric array giving the wavelengths at which the y values should be inserted by interpolation, no interpolation is indicated by an empty array (numeric(0))

Value

a data.frame with variables x and y

Note

Insertion is a costly operation but I have tried to optimize this function as much as possible by avoiding loops. Earlier this function was implemented in C++, but a bug was discovered and I have now rewritten it using R.
