globalSumsTable {amber}R Documentation

Table of globally summed values and corresponding biases.

Description

This function produces a table of globally summed values and corresponding biases when comparing model and reference data. The table provides the variable name, the reference data name, globally summed values from the model and reference data, the absolute bias, the relative bias, units, and time period. The inputs consist of netCDF files produced by scores.grid.time and scores.grid.notime. The global sums are based on grid cells that model and reference data have in common.

Usage

globalSumsTable(mod.path.list, modelIDs, variableNames, unitLaTeX,
  conversionFactor, outputDir = FALSE)

Arguments

mod.path.list

A list with paths for each model run, e.g. mod.path.list <- list(mod01.path, mod02.path, mod03.path).

modelIDs

An R object with the different model run IDs, e.g. c('CLASSIC.CRUJRAv2', 'CLASSIC.GSWP3W5E5', 'CLASSIC.CRUNCEP')

variableNames

Variable names, e.g. c('GPP', 'CSOIL', 'BURNT')

unitLaTeX

Desired output units in LaTeX format, e.g. c('PgC yr$^-1$', 'PgC', '10$^6$ km$^2$ yr^-1')

conversionFactor

Factors that convert the unit of the input files into the desired output unit, e.g. c((10^(15) / 365.25)^(-1), 10^(-12), 12*10^(-14)). Examples of typical conversions include (i) carbon fluxes from gC/day to PgC/yr, (ii) carbon stocks from kgC to PgC, and fractional area burnt from percentage per month to 10^6 km2 per year. Conversion from gC/day to PgC/yr: 1 PgC/yr = 10^15 gC/yr = 10^15 / 365.25 gC/day. Taking the reciprocal leads to the conversion factor, i.e. (10^(15) / 365.25)^(-1). Conversion from kgC to PgC: 1 PgC = 10^15 gC = 10^12 kgC. The resulting conversion factor is 10^(-12). Conversion from percentage of grid cell per month to 10^6 km2 per year: 10^6 km2 per year = 10^12 m2 per year = 1/12 * 10^12 m2 per month. To account for the conversion from percentage to fraction, we need to multiply by 100. The resulting conversion factor is 12*10^(-14).

outputDir

A string that gives the output directory, e.g. '/home/project/study'. The output table in LaTeX format will only be written if the user specifies an output directory.

Value

A table with globally summed values and corresponding biases.
