Confidence Estimation of Environmental State Classifications


This package can be used to estimate the confidence of state classifications (e.g., with the classification ‘bad’, ‘moderate’, ‘good’) produced using environmental indicators and associated targets. The implementation closely follows Baggelaar et al. (2010) where the confidence intervals for the estimated multiyear averages are derived by assuming a Student's t distribution for the errors. For more information about the package see the package-vignette (type: vignette("confidence") at the R-prompt to view the vignette.).
