AgeDepth {ArchaeoPhases} R Documentation

## age depth curve Compute the age-depth curve from the output of mcmc algorithm of ages and the known depth of each dated samples.

### Description

age depth curve Compute the age-depth curve from the output of mcmc algorithm of ages and the known depth of each dated samples.

### Usage

AgeDepth(
data,
depth,
new.depth = NULL,
max.iter = nrow(data),
sampling = FALSE
)


### Arguments

 data Data frame containing the output of the MCMC algorithm. depth Vector of the depths of the dated samples new.depth Vector of the undated depths whose the age will be predict. By defauft new.depth=NULL max.iter a non-negative integer giving the limit number of MCMC itereations By defauft max.iter=nrow(data) sampling should sampling be random. By defauft sampling = FALSE

### Details

Estimate the Age-Depth relationship from the MCMC output of a Bayesian chronological model and the depth of each dated sample. We assume it exists a function f relating the age and the depth  age = f( depth) . We estimate the function using local regression (also called local polynomial regression): f = loess(age ~ depth). This estimated function f depends on the unknown dates. However, from the posterior distribution of the age/date sequence, we can evaluate the posterior distribution of the age function for each desired depth.

### Value

A list containing two matrix. data.stat summarises the MCMC output from the L1 Bayes estimate and credible interval at significance level 68% and 95%. age.depth provide the L1 Bayes estimate, credible interval at significance level 68% and 95% on the age at depth depth and new.depth
