Extreme Heat Exposure (EHE)

Description

Extreme Heat Exposure (EHE). Useful for climatic risks assessement on wheat and barley.

Usage

ehe(mx, dates, op = "first")

Arguments

mx

vector of daily maximum temperature series.

dates

vector of dates corresponding with daily temprature series

op

character. Indicates whether the output will be in date or numeric format.

Details

Adapted from Trnka et al. (2014). Event is triggered when the Tmax is above +35°C for at least three days during the period from five days after anthesis (supposed to be May-1st) to maturity (suposed to be July-31st). The minimum daily temperature is usually measured 2 m above ground; thus, the actual crop temperature might be even lower.

Value

If op = "first", the function returns the first day (date format) when the first event is triggered. If op =='doy', julian day is returned. If op = "number", the funciton returns the number of events occurred in the year.
