For lake prediction the data must be in the form of a csv file
with the first column containing sample date in dd/mm/yyyy format
and the subsqeuent columns containing lswt measurements in celsius.
Any missing LSWT values should be denoted NA. An error will be given if any of the dates are missing
This app shows the predicted lake thermal region for
each grid cell (~2 degree) agross the globe based on
simulated Flake time series.
On the 'Main' tab clicking on a point on the map will produce
a plot of the Flake data (points) along with the
smoothed curve (shown by a solid black line).
There is also the option to add on the predicted thermal region group mean
for the location selected and any additional group means that might be of interest.
Locations where there is a 'flat' data series at zero have not
been included in the predictions due to excessive periods of ice cover,
.i.e. there is no predicted class for these locations. If a location on the map
is selected where no data are available, the error 'no applicable method for
recode applied to an object of class NULL' will be displayed
'Post' indicates the posterior probability of cluster membership.
The table below shows the colour information used for the groups within the app.
