Average Spectral Misfit

Description

Calculate Average Spectral Misfit with Monte Carlo spectra simulations, as updated in Meyers et al. (2012).

Usage

asm(freq,target,fper=NULL,rayleigh,nyquist,sedmin=1,sedmax=5,numsed=50,
    linLog=1,iter=100000,output=F,genplot=T)

Arguments

freq

A vector of candidate astronomical cycles observed in your data spectrum (cycles/m). Maximum allowed is 500.

target

A vector of astronomical frequencies to evaluate (1/ka). These must be in order of increasing frequency (e.g., e1,e2,e3,o1,o2,p1,p2). Maximum allowed is 50 frequencies.

fper

A vector of uncertainties on each target frequency (1/ka). Values should be from 0-1, representing uncertainty as a percent of each target frequency. The order of the uncertainties must follow that of the target vector. By default, no uncertainty is assigned.

rayleigh

Rayleigh frequency (cycles/m).

nyquist

Nyquist frequency (cycles/m).

sedmin

Minimum sedimentation rate for investigation (cm/ka).

sedmax

Maximum sedimentation rate for investigation (cm/ka).

numsed

Number of sedimentation rates to investigate in ASM optimization grid. Maximum allowed is 500.

linLog

Use linear or logarithmic scaling for sedimentation rate grid spacing? (0=linear, 1=log)

iter

Number of Monte Carlo simulations for significance testing. Maximum allowed is 100,000.

output

Return output as a new data frame? (T or F)

genplot

Generate summary plots? (T or F)

Details

This function will caculate the Average Spectral Misfit between a data spectrum and astronomical target spectrum, following the approach outlined in Meyers and Sageman (2007), and the improvements of Meyers et al. (2012).

Value

A data frame containing: Sedimentation rate (cm/ka), ASM (cycles/ka), Null hypothesis significance level (0-100 percent), Number of astronomical terms fit.
