The R gimms package provides a set of functions to. retrieve information about AVHRR GIMMS NDVI3g files currently available online; download (and re-arrange, in the case of older product versions) the half-monthly datasets; import downloaded files from native introduction to GIMMS.

First of all, it is of course helpful to know which half-monthly files are currently available at ECOCAST or this purpose, updateInventory imports the online file inventory directly into R and, when dealing with NDVI3g.v0 data, automatically sorts the resultant file vector by date (which is not quite intuitive when dealing with names like Global Mann-Kendall trend test.

The function significantTau has been developed and added to gimms to facilitate the calculation of reliable long-term monotonous trends. It is up to the user to decide whether or not to apply pre-whitening prior to the Mann-Kendall trend test in Monthly composites.

Sometimes, it is required to calculate monthly value composites from the half-monthly GIMMS datasets, for example if the user needs to ensure temporal overlap with some other ecological or eco-climatological time :// As said, rasterizeGimms already offers basic QA functionality through the argument keep, so there is actually no need to do this reasons of convenience and in order to ensure compatibility with older package versions, however, NDVI3g quality control is also available through the function qualityControl which is, at least at the moment, compatible with 2-layered 'RasterStack Rasterize downloaded data.

rasterizeGimms is possibly the core part of the gimms package as it transforms the downloaded GIMMS files from NetCDF (NDVI3g.v1) or native binary format (NDVI3g.v0) to objects of class 'Raster*' which is — at least in my opinion — much easier to handle than ENVI files or 'ncdf4' objects.

A brief introduction to Modern Monetary Theory What is ‘the economy’. If you listened to any Chancellor since the late 70s, you would be forgiven for gaining the impression that it is all about ‘debt’ and ‘deficit’ and how the country has to ‘live within its means’ and ‘pay down its credit card’.
