Examples

## Loading daily streamflows at the station Oca en Ona (Ebro River basin, Spain) ##
data(OcaEnOnaQts)
x <- OcaEnOnaQts

## Daily to Monthly ts
m <- daily2monthly(x, FUN=mean, na.rm=FALSE)

# Plotting the monthly values
plot(m, xlab="Time")

## Plotting the annual moving average in station 'x'
lines(ma(m, win.len=12), col="blue")
