Description

Produce a composite serie from multiple charcoal records using bootstrap resampling, the sites charcoal values are binned and the mean in each bin is calculated prior the bootstrap procedure. This procedure is equivalent to Power et al. 2008.

Usage

2
pfComposite(TR, bins = NULL, nboot = 1000, binning = TRUE,
  conf = c(0.05, 0.95))

Arguments

TR

An object returned by pfTransform

bins

Numeric, the sequence for binning given in years (e.g. bins=seq(from=0, to=10000, by=200)). If unspecified the sequence is defined as bins=seq(from=min age, to=max age, by=median resolution).

nboot

Numeric, a number specifying the number of bootstrap replicates.

binning

Logical, set to TRUE (default) for binning, if transformed data are first interpolated this argument can be set to FALSE (no binning).

conf

Numeric, define confidence levels.

Value

Object of the class "pfComposite"
