transmissivity: Transmissivity

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

Transmissivity Fraction of direct solar radiation passing through the atmosphere based on the Bristow-Campbell eqn

Usage

1
transmissivity(Tx,Tn, A=0.75, C=2.4, opt="1day", JD=NULL)

Arguments

Tx

maximum daily temperature [C]

Tn

minimum daily temperature [C]

A

Maximum transmissivity in a location, varies with environmental conditions and elevation

C

Empirical partitioning coefficient - set to 2.4

opt

Options: "1day" uses the diurnal temperature change as Tx-Tn for any given day; "2day" depends on an average temperature change, i.e. the max temp today minus the average of the min temps of today and tomorrow; Users who do not have a continuous record of daily temperatures should use "missingdays" - note that this depends on JD input. If JD is null and "missingdays" is chosen the function will default to "1day"

JD

A vector of julian days corresponding to temp measurements. Only needed if using opt="missingdays"

Details

Can accept either single values or vectors for Tx,Tn and JD.

##  Assuming the temperature measurements are consecutive days, default option:
transmissivity(Tx=c(10,10,10,10,10), Tn=c(1,2,6,9,2))
## Second option:
transmissivity(Tx=c(10,10,10,10,10), Tn=c(1,2,6,9,2), opt="2day")
##  When the days are not consecutive:
transmissivity(Tx=c(10,10,10,10,10), Tn=c(1,2,6,9,2), JD=c(250,265,300,320,321), opt="missingdays")
