View source: R/timeseries.functions.R

Description

Function for simplifying the calculation of Wedderburn Number. Can usually be called directly on data loaded directly using load.ts and load.bathy.

Usage

1
ts.wedderburn.number(wtr, wnd, wnd.height, bathy, Ao, seasonal = TRUE)

Arguments

wtr

A data frame of water temperatures (in Celsius). Loaded using load.ts

wnd

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

wnd.height

Height of the anemometer above the lake surface in meters

bathy

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

Ao

Numeric value for the water body surface area (m^2) at zero meters depth

seasonal

Boolean indicating if seasonal thermocline should be used in calculation.

Value

Returns a data frame with the timeseries of Wedderburn number. Includes a ‘datetime’ column.
