#function to compute application uniformity of low quarter (AELQ)
#AELQ assumes an application depth in the low-quarter greater than current soil-moisture deficit (SMD) and thus
#accounts for losses below the root zone in addition to non-uniformity.  As such, AELQ<=PELQ by definition.
#When the application in the low-quarter matches the overall SMD, then AELQ=PELQ
#Formulaicly, the equation is SMD over average applied (pumped), not low-quarter pumped. Mirriam and Keller, 1978,
#Farm System Irrigation Evaluation: A Guide for Management, PP 43,44
#rate is sprinkler flow rate, ss is sprinkler spacing, sl is lateral spacing, dur is irrigation duration, smd is soil
#moisture deficit at the time of irrigation event

  #get subarray of low quarter
  infil<-mean(x[1:end])*dur # determination of infiltrated (caught) depth to compare with SMD
  # if infil>SMD then AELQ=smd/avg. applied depth, else AELQ= low quarter caught depth/avg. applied depth
  #SI use mm for depth, meters for spacing, lpm for sprinkler flow rate, hr duration
  #US Customary use in. for depth, feet for spacing, gpm for sprinkler flow rate, hr duration
