Description

Function estimates Supit-Van Kappel model coefficients 'A', 'B' and 'C' based on reference data

Usage

1
sucal(days, lat, rad_mea, extraT=NULL, tmax, tmin, cc)

Arguments

days

Vector of class 'Date' of length n.

lat

Latitude in decimal degrees.

rad_mea

Vector of length n containing reference (e.g. measured) solar radiation [MJm-2].

extraT

Optional. Vector of length n of extraterrestrial solar radiation [MJm-2]. If 'NULL' then it is calculated by the function. Providing extraterrestrial solar radiation speeds up the computation

tmax

Vector of length n containing daily maximum temperature [C].

tmin

Vector of length n containing daily minumum temperature [C].

cc

Vector of length n containing daily cloud coverage [octas].

Details

Function estimates Supit-Van Kappel model coefficients 'A', 'B' and 'C' based on reference (e.g. measured) solar radiation data. It performs a linear regression.

Value

Vector of length 3:

Sa

Supit-Van Kappel 'A' coefficient

Sb

Supit-Van Kappel 'B' coefficient

Sc

Supit-Van Kappel 'C' coefficient

Sr2

Coefficient of determination of performed linear regression
