group3: Calculate the group 3 IHA parameters.

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

The group 3 IHA parameters measure the timing of annual extreme water conditions. These metrics will differ from TNC metrics where the minimum or maximum occurs during a leap year after february 28th. The TNC software seems to assume that all years are leap years. So if the minium for a year is Mar 1 of a non-leap year, this code will return 60, whereas the TNC sofware returns 61.

Usage

1
  group3(x, year = c("water", "calendar"), mimic.tnc = F)

x

A zoo object containing the flow series

year
