sedRamp {astrochron}R Documentation

Apply 'ramping' sedimentation rate model to convert time to stratigraphy

Description

Apply a linearly increasing (or decreasing) sedimentation rate model to convert time to stratigraphy.

Usage

sedRamp(dat,srstart=0.01,srend=0.05,genplot=T,verbose=T)

Arguments

dat

Time series. First column should be time (in ka), second column should be data value.

srstart

Initial sedimentation rate (in m/ka).

srend

Final sedimentation rate (in m/ka).

genplot

Generate summary plots? (T or F)

verbose

Verbose output? (T or F)

Value

modeled stratigraphic series.

Examples

# generate example series with 3 precession terms using function 'cycles'
# then convert from time to space using sedimentation rate that increases from 1 to 7 cm/ka
ex=sedRamp(cycles(),srstart=0.01,srend=0.07)
