Defines functions ma41.45

Documented in ma41.45

#' Function to return the MA41.45 hydrologic indicator statistics for a given data frame
#' This function accepts a data frame that contains columns named "discharge" and "year_val" and 
#' calculates MA41; annual runoff. Compute the annual mean daily flows. MA41 is the mean of the annual 
#' means divided by the drainage area. MA42; Variability across annual flows. MA42 is the maximum annual 
#' flow minus the minimum annual flow divided by the median annual flow. MA43; Same as MA42, but using the 
#' 25th and 75th percentiles. MA44; Same as MA42, but using the 10th and 90th percentiles. MA45; 
#' Skewness in the annual flows. MA45 is the mean of the annual flow means minus the median of the annual 
#' flows divided by the median of the annual means.
#' @param qfiletemp data frame containing a "discharge" column containing daily flow values
#' @param drain_area numeric containing the drainage area of the selected site
#' @return ma41.45 list of MA41-MA45 for the given data frame
#' @export
