zonalMeanStats {amber}R Documentation

Zonal mean plots of AMBER results (bias, bias scores, etc)

Description

This function computes zonal mean values of model and reference data and the zonal mean bias, centralized root-mean-squre error, phase, inter-annual variability, and corresponding scores. The computation is based on the NetCDF files produced by scores.grid.time.

Usage

zonalMeanStats(inputDir, outputDir = FALSE)

Arguments

inputDir

A string that gives the location of NetCDF files produced by scores.grid.time and scores.grid.notime, e.g. '/home/project/study'.

outputDir

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

Value

A list with two tables. The first table gives the zonal mean values of the mean, bias, standard deviation, centralized root-mean-squre error, month of seasonal peak, phase, inter-annual variability, and corresponding scores for each variable and globally gridded reference data set. The second table gives the physical units of each variable in LaTeX notation (e.g. 'W m$^-2$'). Both tables are written to two text files (zonalMeanStats and zonalMeanStatsUnits) if the user specifies an output directory.
