Description

A data cleaning function for optimal Box-Cox transformation, detrending, standarizing variance, de-meaning

Usage

1
cleandat(dat, times, clev, lambdas = seq(-10, 10, by = 0.01), mints = NA)

Arguments

dat

A locations x time data matrix, or a time series vector (for 1 location)

times

The times of measurement, spacing 1

clev

The level of cleaning to do, 1 through 5. See details.

lambdas

A vector of lambdas to test for optimal Box-Cox transformation, if Box-Cox is performed. Ignored for clev<4. Defaults to seq(-10,10, by=0.01). See details.

mints

If clev is 4 or 5, then time series are shifted to have this minimum value before Box-Cox transformation. Default NA means use the smallest difference between consecutive, distinct sorted values. NaN means perform no shift.

Details

NAs, Infs, etc. in dat trigger an error. If clev==1, time series are (individually) de-meaned. If clev==2, time series are (individually) linearly detrended and de-meaned. If clev==3, time series are (individually) linearly detrended and de-meaned, and variances are standardized to 1. If clev==4, an optimal Box-Cox normalization procedure is applied jointly to all time series (so the same Box-Cox transformation is applied to all time series after they are individually shifted depending on the value of mints). Transformed time series are then individually linearly detrended, de-meaned, and variances are standardized to 1. If clev==5, an optimal Box-Cox normalization procedure is applied to each time series individually (again after individually shifting according to mints), and transformed time series are then individually linearly detrended, de-meaned, and variances are standardized to 1. Constant time series and perfect linear trends trigger an error for clev>=3. If clev>=4 and the optimal lambda for one or more time series is a boundary case or if there is more than one optimal lambda, it triggers a warning. A wider range of lambda should be considered in the former case.

Value

cleandat returns a list containing the cleaned data, clev, and the optimal lambdas from the Box-Cox procedure (NA for clev<4, see details).
