Description

This function accepts a data frame that contains a column named "discharge" and calculates DL16; Low flow pulse duration. Compute the average pulse duration for each year for flow events below a threshold equal to the 25th percentile value for the entire flow record. DL16 is the median of the yearly average durations (number of days-temporal). and DL17; Variability in low pulse duration. Compute the standard deviation for the yearly average low pulse durations. DL17 is 100 times the standard deviation divided by the mean of the yearly average low pulse durations (percent-spatial).
