Passing in a download object the function outputs a Bacon or Clam formatted file to a user defined destination for age modelling with existing age-depth modeling software.

write_agefile(download, chronology = 1, path, corename, cal.prog = "Bacon")

Arguments

download

A single site returned by get_download.

chronology

Default is 1, the default chronology for the core. If a core has more than one chronology the user can define a different set of chronological controls.

path

The location of the 'Cores' folder & working directory for Bacon. Do not include "Cores" in the path name.

corename

The intended handle for the core, to be used in writing to file.

cal.prog

The method intended to build the age model, either 'Bacon' or 'Clam'.

Value

This command returns a file in location path/Cores containing all the relevant information required to build either the default or prior chronology for a core.

Examples

if (FALSE) { # Find a particular record: three_pines <- get_download(get_dataset(get_site("Three Pines Bog"), datasettype = "pollen")) # You will need to edit the `path` argument here to point to a directory that # contains a `Cores` directory. write_agefile(download = three_pines[[1]], path = "./inst", corename = "THREEPINES", cal.prog = "Bacon") }
