Model3SdErrClimTaper: Three-sigma error specification assuming errors are smaller...

Description Usage Arguments

View source: R/dart_prep_streamflow.R

Description

Model3SdErrClimTaper models three-sigma errors (same units as input) as smallest (qntlIncpt intercept is some climatological quantile) at "climatological" observations (qntlClim, e.g. median = .5) and grow to some maximum percent error (pctErr). This is expressed by
quantile(data, qntlIncpt) + pmin( pctErr*data, pctErr*abs(data-quantile(data, qntlClim)) )

Usage

1
2
Model3SdErrClimTaper(data, qntlIncpt = 0.05, qntlClim = 0.5,
  pctErr = 0.15)

Arguments

data

Numeric The values for which errors are to be modeled.

qntlIncpt

Numeric The quantile of historical observations to be used as minimum error or intercept.

qntlClim

Numeric The quantile of historical observations to be used as observation value of minimum error.

pctErr

Numeric The percent error associated with the observations.
