Description Usage Arguments Value

View source: R/chemical_mass_balance.R

Description

Extract baseflow from a daily streamflow record using conductance or other continuously monitored conservative chemicals as markers of baseflow and surface flow.

Usage

bf_chem_mass_balance(date, discharge, C, C_baseflow = max(C),
  C_runoff = min(C), STAID = "Unknown")

Arguments

date

vector of dates corresponding to each discharge, should be of class "Date." Missing values are not permitted.

discharge

the daily streamflow to be separated missing values are not permitted

C

daily chemical concentration values

C_baseflow

assumed chemical concentration associated with water derived from baseflow

C_runoff

assumed chemical concentration associated with water deriver from surface flow

STAID

the station identifier for the data.

Value

an object of class "baseflow" and inherits class "data.frame" of the selected data, a data frame of the baseflow information, and other information about the analysis.
