Calculate thermal time using cardinal temperatures

thermalTimeDaily(mint, maxt, x_temp, y_temp, method = NULL)

Arguments

mint

The minimum temperature

maxt

The maximum temperature

x_temp

The cardinal temperatures

y_temp

The effective thermal time

method

The method to calculate thermal time. The default method is ( maxt + mint ) / 2 - base. The three hour temperature methods will be usesd if method = '3hr'

Value

The thermal time.

Examples

mint <- c(0, 10) maxt <- c(30, 40) x_temp <- c(0, 20, 35) y_temp <- c(0, 20, 0) thermalTimeDaily(mint, maxt, x_temp, y_temp)
#> [1] 15.00000 13.33333
thermalTimeDaily(mint, maxt, x_temp, y_temp, method = '3hr')
#> [1] 9.279687 8.790563
