## Create lithofacies rank series from bed thickness data

### Description

Create lithofacies rank series from bed thickness data.

### Usage

```
rankSeries(dat,dt,start=0,genplot=T,verbose=T)
```

### Arguments

`dat` |
First column should be bed thickness, and second column should bed lithofacies rank. |

`dt` |
Sampling interval for piecewise linear interpolation. By default a grid spacing that is 5 times smaller than the thinnest bed is used. If dt is set to zero, interpolation is skipped. |

`start` |
Start at what time/depth/height value? |

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

`verbose` |
Verbose output? (T or F) |

### Examples

```
# generate example series with random bed thicknesses
exThick=rnorm(n=20,mean=10,sd=2)
# assign alternating rank of 1 and 2
rank=double(20)
rank[seq(from=1,to=19,by=2)] <- 1
rank[seq(from=2,to=20,by=2)] <- 2
# combine into a dataframe
ex=cb(exThick,rank)
# generate lithofacies rank series
rankSeries(ex)
```
