Days with Information

Description

This function generates a table indicating the number of days with information (<>NA) within a zoo object, aggregated by year, month or month per year.

Usage

dwi(x, ...)

## Default S3 method:
dwi(x, out.unit = "years", from = start(x), to = end(x), 
     date.fmt = "%Y-%m-%d", tstep="days", ...)
     
## S3 method for class 'zoo'
dwi(x, out.unit = "years", from = start(x), to = end(x), 
     date.fmt = "%Y-%m-%d", tstep="days", ...)

## S3 method for class 'data.frame'
dwi(x, out.unit = "years", from, to, date.fmt = "%Y-%m-%d", tstep="days", 
     dates = 1, verbose = TRUE, ...)
     
## S3 method for class 'matrix'
dwi(x, out.unit = "years", from, to, date.fmt = "%Y-%m-%d", tstep="days", 
     dates = 1, verbose = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

x

zoo, data.frame or matrix object, with daily/monthly/annual time series.
Measurements at several gauging stations can be stored in a data.frame of matrix object, and in that case, each column of x represent the time series measured in each gauging station, and the column names of x have to correspond to the ID of each station (starting by a letter).

out.unit

aggregation time for the computation of the amount of days with information. Valid values are:
-) months: monthly;
-) years : annual;
-) mpy : month per year (not available for data.frames)

from

Character indicating the starting date for the computations. It has to be in the format indicated by date.fmt.
When x is a data.frame and this value is not provided, the date corresponding to the first row of x is used

to

Character indicating the ending date for the computations. It has to be in the format indicated by date.fmt.
When x is a data.frame and this value is not provided, the date corresponding to the last row of x is used

date.fmt

character indicating the format in which the dates are stored in dates, e.g. %Y-%m-%d. See format in as.Date.
ONLY required when class(dates)=="factor" or class(dates)=="numeric".

tstep

Time step used for storing the values in x. Valid values are: days, months, years. Since the version 0.3-0 of hydroTSM, this argument is not required any more, because it is not used any longer.

dates

numeric, factor or Date object indicating how to obtain the dates for each column of x
If dates is a number, it indicates the index of the column in x that stores the dates
If dates is a factor, it is converted into Date class, using the date format specified by date.fmt
If dates is already of Date class, the code verifies that the number of days in dates be equal to the number of element in x

verbose

logical; if TRUE, progress messages are printed

...

further arguments passed to or from other methods.

Examples

## Loading the SanMartino precipitation data
data(SanMartinoPPts)
x <- SanMartinoPPts

## Not run: 
## Days with information per year
dwi(x)

## Days with information per month per year.
dwi(x, out.unit="mpy")

## End(Not run)

###########
## Not run: 
## Loading the monthly time series of precipitation within the Ebro River basin.
data(EbroPPtsMonthly)

## Months with information per year in the 9 first stations of 'EbroPPtsMonthly'
a <- dwi(EbroPPtsMonthly[,1:10], out.unit="years", dates=1)

## Before plotting the results in 'a', and just for obtaining a more interesting
## plot, 70 random numbers (between 1 and 11) are introduced in 'a'
a[sample(length(a), size = 70)] <- rep(1:11, length=70)

## Plotting the amount of months with information per year in each station
matrixplot(a, var.type="Days", main="Number of months with info per year")

## End(Not run)
