horizons,SoilProfileCollection-method {aqp}R Documentation

Retrieve horizon data from SoilProfileCollection

Description

Get horizon data from SoilProfileCollection. Result is returned in the same data.frame class used to initially construct the SoilProfileCollection.

Horizon data in an object inheriting from data.frame can easily be added via merge (LEFT JOIN). There must be one or more same-named columns (with at least some matching data) on the left and right hand side to facilitate the join: horizons(spc) <- newdata

Usage

## S4 method for signature 'SoilProfileCollection'
horizons(object)

horizons(object) <- value

Arguments

object

A SoilProfileCollection

value

An object inheriting data.frame

Examples


# load test data
data(sp2)

# promote to SPC
depths(sp2) <- id ~ top + bottom

# assign true to surface horizon
newdata <- data.frame(top = 0,
                      newvalue = TRUE)

# do left join
horizons(sp2) <- newdata

# inspect site table: newvalue TRUE only for horizons
#  with top depth equal to zero
horizons(sp2)
