Defines functions dh1

Documented in dh1

#' Function to return the DH1 hydrologic indicator statistic for a given data frame
#' This function accepts a data frame that contains a column named "discharge" and calculates 
#' DH1; Annual maximum daily flow. Compute the maximum of a 1-day moving average flow for each year. DH1 is the 
#' mean (or median-Use Preference option) of these values (cubic feet per second-temporal).
#' @param qfiletempf data frame containing a "discharge" column containing daily flow values
#' @param pref string containing a "mean" or "median" preference
#' @return dh1 numeric containing DH1 for the given data frame
#' @export
#' @examples
#' qfiletempf<-sampleData
#' dh1(qfiletempf)

    dh1 <- median(annualmax$x)

    dh1 <- mean(annualmax$x)
