This function applies a warping factor to the horizons of a single-profile SoilProfileCollection object. Warping values >1 will inflate horizon thickness, values <1 will deflate horizon thickness.

warpHorizons(x, fact, updateProfileID = TRUE, suffix = "-w")

Arguments

x

a SoilProfileCollection object

fact

numeric or character; warping factor specified as a single numeric value, vector of numeric values (length = nrow(x)), or column name of a horizon level attribute containing numeric values

updateProfileID

logical; modify profile IDs

suffix

character; suffix added to profile IDs when updateProfileID = TRUE

Value

a modified version of x, SoilProfileCollection object
