Documented in th1.2

#' Function to return the TH1 and TH2 hydrologic indicator statistics for a given data frame
#' This function accepts a data frame that contains a column named "discharge" and calculates 
#' TH1; Julian date of annual maximum. Determine the Julian date that the maximum flow occurs for each year. 
#' Transform the dates to relative values on a circular scale (radians or degrees). Compute the x and y components 
#' for each year and average them across all years. Compute the mean angle as the arc tangent of y-mean divided by 
#' x-mean. Transform the resultant angle back to Julian date (Julian day-spatial). and 
#' TH2; Variability in Julian date of annual maxima. Compute the coefficient of variation for the mean x and y 
#' components and convert to a date (Julian days-spatial).
#' @param qfiletempf data frame containing a "discharge" column containing daily flow values
#' @return th1.2 list containing TH1 and TH2 for the given data frame
