A Computational Tool for Astrochronology

Routines for astrochronologic testing, astronomical time scale construction, and time series analysis. Also included are a range of statistical analysis and modeling routines that are relevant to time scale development and paleoclimate analysis.


astrochron v0.8 (Release date: 2018-05-16)

New functions:

  • calcPeriods
  • confAdjust
  • eTimeOpt
  • eTimeOptTrack
  • makeNoise
  • mtmPL
  • multiTest
  • pwrLaw
  • pwrLawFit
  • testBackground
  • timeOptMCMC
  • tracePeak
  • trackPeak

Other changes:

  • function getData: new data added: "graptolite" and "Xiamaling-CuAl".
  • function lowspec: when output=2, order has been changed to match other mtm-based functions.
  • function lowspec: Harmonic_F-test_CL renamed Harmonic_CL
  • function periodogram: replaced ar1 option with background, allowing ar1 or pwrLaw fit.
  • function timeOpt: new option fitModPwr
  • function timeOptSim: implementation of new p-value estimation procedure.
  • function timeOptSim: the function is now parallelized.
  • function timeOptSim: when output=2, now only one column is output, containing r2opt results from all simulations.
  • function timeOptSim: order of options on function call has been changed.
  • check option added to functions linterp, sedrate2time, taner, tune, read, readMatrix, hilbert, timeOpt
