Bacon.Age.d: Output all ages for a single depth.

Bacon.Age.dR Documentation

Output all ages for a single depth.

Description

Output all MCMC-derived age estimates for a given depth.

Usage

Bacon.Age.d(
  d,
  set = get("info"),
  its = set$output,
  BCAD = set$BCAD,
  na.rm = FALSE
)

Arguments

d

The depth of which Bacon age estimates are to be returned. Has to be a single depth.

set

Detailed information of the current run, stored within this session's memory as variable info.

its

The set of MCMC iterations to be used. Defaults to the entire MCMC output, its=set$output.

BCAD

The calendar scale of graphs and age output-files is in cal BP by default, but can be changed to BC/AD using BCAD=TRUE.

na.rm

Whether or not to remove NA values (ages within slumps)

Details

Obtaining an age-depth model is often only a step towards a goal, e.g., plotting a core's fossil series ('proxies') against calendar time. Bacon.Age.d can be used to list all MCMC-derived age estimates for a given (single) depth, for example to calculate mean ages for a depth. See also Bacon.d.Age which calculates the depths of a single age estimate.

Value

Outputs all MCMC-derived ages for a given depth.

Examples

## Not run: 
  Bacon(run=FALSE, coredir=tempfile())
  agedepth(age.res=50, d.res=50, d.by=10)
  ages.d20 = Bacon.Age.d(20)
  mean(ages.d20)

## End(Not run)
