TotalTimeExceedingThreshold {CSIndicators}  R Documentation 
The Total Time of a variable exceeding (or not) a Threshold. It returns the
total number of days (if the data provided is daily, or the corresponding
units of the data frequency) that a variable is exceeding a threshold
during a period. The threshold provided must be in the same units as the
variable units, i.e. to use a percentile as a scalar, the function
AbsToProbs
or QThreshold
may be needed (see examples).
Providing maximum temperature daily data, the following agriculture
indices for heat stress can be obtained by using this function:
SU35
Total count of days when daily maximum temperatures exceed
35°C in the seven months from the start month given (e.g.
from April to October for start month of April).
SU36
Total count of days when daily maximum temperatures exceed
36 between June 21st and September 21st
SU40
Total count of days when daily maximum temperatures exceed
40 between June 21st and September 21st
Spr32
Total count of days when daily maximum temperatures exceed
32 between April 21st and June 21st

data 
A multidimensional array with named dimensions. 
threshold 
If only one threshold is used: it can be a multidimensional array with named dimensions. It must be in the same units and with the common dimensions of the same length as parameter 'data'. It can also be a vector with the same length of 'time_dim' from 'data' or a scalar. If we want to use two thresholds: it can be a vector of two scalars, a list of two vectors with the same length of 'time_dim' from 'data' or a list of two multidimensional arrays with the common dimensions of the same length as parameter 'data'. If two thresholds are used, parameter 'op' must be also a vector of two elements. 
op 
An operator '>' (by default), '<', '>=' or '<='. If two thresholds are used it has to be a vector of a pair of two logical operators: c('<', '>'), c('<', '>='), c('<=', '>'), c('<=', '>='), c('>', '<'), c('>', '<='), c('>=', '<'),c('>=', '<=')). 
dates 
A vector of dates or a multidimensional array of dates with named dimensions matching the dimensions on parameter 'data'. By default it is NULL, to select a period this parameter must be provided. 
start 
An optional parameter to define the initial date of the period
to select from the data by providing a list of two elements: the initial
date of the period and the initial month of the period. By default it is set
to NULL and the indicator is computed using all the data provided in

end 
An optional parameter to define the final date of the period to
select from the data by providing a list of two elements: the final day of
the period and the final month of the period. By default it is set to NULL
and the indicator is computed using all the data provided in 
time_dim 
A character string indicating the name of the dimension to compute the indicator. By default, it is set to 'ftime'. It can only indicate one time dimension. 
na.rm 
A logical value indicating whether to ignore NA values (TRUE) or not (FALSE). 
ncores 
An integer indicating the number of cores to use in parallel computation. 
A multidimensional array with named dimensions containing the total number of the corresponding units of the data frequency that a variable is exceeding a threshold during a period.
