impulseResponse {astrochron}R Documentation

Impulse response function calculation

Description

Calculate the analytical response function from an impulse forcing using the 1-D advection diffusion model proposed in Schink and Guinasso (1975) to model the bioturbation impact on climate time series.

Usage

impulseResponse(G, ML = NULL, v = NULL, nt = 500, genplot = FALSE,
  verbose = FALSE)

Arguments

G

Bioturbation parameter. G = D/ML/v

ML

Mix layer depth (cm)

v

Sedimentation rate (cm/kyr)

nt

Number of steps after the signal is deposited.

genplot

Generate summary plots? (T or F)

verbose

Verbose output? (T or F)

Value

fc Impulse response function
