ts_write_csv(data, file = "tsdbr.csv")

Arguments

data

The data frame with a minimum of columns Station and DateTime

file

either a character string naming a file or a connection open for writing. "" indicates output to the console.

Details

There are three possible status values

Reasonable

There is nothing obviously wrong with the value.

Questionable

The value may be wrong.

Erroneous

The value is definitely wrong.

In general questionable values are those which are in the range of possible values but are inconsistent with spatial or temporal neighbours while erroneous value are those which are outside the range of possible values, ie negative discharge.

If a value is erroneous, questionable or missing (indicated by NA) then we will (time permitting) provide a corrected value based on neighbouring values. Otherwise the corrected value is simply the recorded value. The status column refers to the corrected value and corrected values which differ from the recorded value are coded as Questionable.

If data gaps are not important it is recommended that you only include Reasonable values. Otherwise it is recommended that you only include Questionable values that you consider to be reliable based on plotting and analysis.

Value

An invisible copy of saved data.
