synthStrat {astrochron}R Documentation

Synthesize stratigraphy from forcing function

Description

Synthesize stratigraphy from forcing function.

Usage

synthStrat(signal=NULL,nfacies=4,clip=T,flip=F,fmax=0.1,output=F,genplot=2,verbose=T)

Arguments

signal

Forcing signal. First column should be time (in ka), second column should be forcing.

nfacies

Number of sedimentary facies to model.

clip

Clip forcing signal at mean value? (T or F)

flip

Reverse the sign of the forcing? (T or F)

fmax

Maximum frequency for spectra (if genplot=2).

output

Output facies series? (T or F)

genplot

Generate summary plots? (1) plot stratigraphy, (2) plot statigraphy and spectra.

verbose

Verbose output? (T or F)

Value

modeled stratigraphic series.

Examples

 ## Not run: 
# EX.1: precession, unclipped
signal=etp(tmin=8400,tmax=8900,pWt=1,oWt=0,eWt=0)
synthStrat(signal,nfacies=4,clip=FALSE,genplot=2)

# EX.2: more finely resolved facies
#synthStrat(signal,nfacies=15,clip=FALSE,genplot=2)

# EX.3: couplets
#synthStrat(signal,nfacies=2,clip=FALSE,genplot=2)

# EX.4: precession, clipped
#synthStrat(signal,nfacies=4,genplot=2)

# EX.5: noise
noise=ar1(npts=501,rho=0.8)
#synthStrat(noise,nfacies=4,genplot=2)

# EX.6: precession + noise 
#signal2=signal
#signal2[2]=signal2[2]+0.75*noise[2]
#synthStrat(signal2,nfacies=4,genplot=2)

# EX.7: p-0.5t, clipped (demonstrates interference pattern; compare with EX.4
#signal3=etp(tmin=8400,tmax=8900,pWt=1,oWt=-0.5,eWt=0)
#synthStrat(signal3,nfacies=4,genplot=2)

# EX.8: ice sheet model, using p-0.5t
#ice=imbrie()
#synthStrat(ice,nfacies=5,clip=FALSE,genplot=2)

# EX.9: precession, clipped, ramping sedimentation rate
#synthStrat(linterp(sedRamp(signal,genplot=FALSE),genplot=FALSE),nfacies=6,
# clip=TRUE,genplot=2,fmax=10)
