Block bootstrap has been proposed to test the significances of changes in stationary time series (Kunsch 1989). This procedure consists of splitting each charcoal series into n-b+1 overlapping blocks of data, where n is sample size and b the block size. These blocks are used to reconstruct resampled individual charcoal series that are in turn used to estimate the confidence intervals around the charcoal series composite mean.

1 2 | ```
pfCircular(comp, b = NULL, conf = c(0.05, 0.95), nboot = 1000,
AgeLim = NULL)
``` |

`comp` |
A "pfComposite" object |

`b` |
A numeric giving block size, if NULL the optimal block size for a given series is given by: b= 2x(-1 /log(p)), where p is the lag one autocorrelation coefficient of that series (Adams, Mann & Ammann 2003). |

`conf` |
Numeric, calculated confidence intervals. |

`nboot` |
Numeric, number of bootstrap replicates. |

`AgeLim` |
Numeric, years defining a period to restrict the analysis to. |

`out` |
A "pfCircular" object with estimated confidence intervals. |
