ts.uStar: Calculate physical indices for a timeseries.

View source: R/timeseries.functions.R


Functions for simplifying the calculation of physical indices for a timeseries of observation data. Can usually be called directly on data loaded directly using load.ts and load.bathy.

These are wrapper functions that accept a timeseries of data and call the core physical metric functions (like schmidt.stability) on each timestep.


ts.uStar(wtr, wnd, wnd.height, bathy, seasonal = TRUE)



A data frame of water temperatures (in Celsius). Loaded using load.ts. Must have columns datetime, wtr_##.# where ##.# is depth in meters.


A data frame of wind speeds (in m/s). Loaded using load.ts


Height of the anemometer above the lake surface in meters


A data frame containing hypsometric data. Loaded using load.bathy


Boolean indicating if seasonal thermocline should be used in calculation.


Returns a data frame with the timeseries of calculated derivatives. All include a ‘datetime’ column, but derivative columns differ between functions.
