sim {aqp} | R Documentation |
Simulate a collection of soil profiles based on the horizonation of a single soil profile. Now deprecated: use perturb()
for perturbations of horizon thicknesses or boundaries.
sim(x, n = 1, iterations = 25, hz.sd = 2, min.thick = 2)
x |
a SoilProfileCollection object containing a single profile from which to draw simulated data |
n |
the number of requested simulations |
iterations |
sampling iterations used to determine each horizon thickness |
hz.sd |
standard deviation used to simulate horizon thickness, can be a vector but must divide evenly into the number of horizons found in |
min.thick |
minimum horizon thickness allowed in simulation results |
This function generates a collection of simulated soil profiles based on the horizon thickness data associated with a single "template" profile. Simulation is based on sampling from a family of Gaussian distribution with means defined by the "template" profile and standard deviation defined by the user.
A SoilProfileCollection object with n
simulated profiles, each containing the same number of horizons and same data as x

# please see documentation for perturb() for examples # the sim() function calls perturb() internally
