DynBiasCorrection {CSTools}R Documentation

Performing a Bias Correction conditioned by the dynamical properties of the data.

Description

This function perform a bias correction conditioned by the dynamical properties of the dataset. This function used the functions 'CST_Predictability' to divide in terciles the two dynamical proxies computed with 'CST_ProxiesAttractor'. A bias correction between the model and the observations is performed using the division into terciles of the local dimension 'dim' and inverse of the persistence 'theta'. For instance, model values with lower 'dim' will be corrected with observed values with lower 'dim', and the same for theta. The function gives two options of bias correction: one for 'dim' and/or one for 'theta'

Usage

DynBiasCorrection(
  exp,
  obs,
  method = "QUANT",
  wetday = FALSE,
  proxy = "dim",
  quanti,
  ncores = NULL
)

Arguments

exp

a multidimensional array with named dimensions with the experiment data

obs

a multidimensional array with named dimensions with the observation data

method

a character string indicating the method to apply bias correction among these ones: "PTF","RQUANT","QUANT","SSPLIN"

wetday

logical indicating whether to perform wet day correction or not OR a numeric threshold below which all values are set to zero (by default is set to 'FALSE').

proxy

a character string indicating the proxy for local dimension 'dim' or inverse of persistence 'theta' to apply the dynamical conditioned bias correction method.

quanti

a number lower than 1 indicating the quantile to perform the computation of local dimension and theta

ncores

The number of cores to use in parallel computation

Value

a multidimensional array with named dimensions with a bias correction performed conditioned by local dimension 'dim' or inverse of persistence 'theta'
