eAsm {astrochron} | R Documentation |

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

```
eAsm(spec,siglevel=0.9,target,fper=NULL,rayleigh,nyquist,sedmin=1,sedmax=5,
numsed=50,linLog=1,iter=100000,ydir=1,palette=2,output=4,genplot=F)
```

`spec` |
Time-frequency spectral results to evaluate. Must have the following format: column 1=frequency; remaining columns (2 to n)=probability; titles for columns 2 to n must be the location (depth or height). Note that this format is ouput by function eha. |

`siglevel` |
Threshold level for filtering peaks. |

`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. |

`ydir` |
Direction for y-axis in plots (depth or height). -1 = values increase downwards (slower plotting!), 1 = values increase upwards. |

`palette` |
What color palette would you like to use? (1) rainbow, (2) viridis |

`output` |
Return output as a new data frame? (0 = nothing, 1 = Ho-SL, 2 = ASM, 3 = # astronomical terms, 4 = everything) |

`genplot` |
Generate summary plots? (T or F) |

Please see function asm for details.
