Simulate a collection of soil profiles based on the horizonation of a single soil profile. Now deprecated: use
perturb() for perturbations of horizon thicknesses or boundaries.
sim(x, n = 1, iterations = 25, hz.sd = 2, min.thick = 2)
a SoilProfileCollection object containing a single profile from which to draw simulated data
the number of requested simulations
sampling iterations used to determine each horizon thickness
standard deviation used to simulate horizon thickness, can be a vector but must divide evenly into the number of horizons found in
minimum horizon thickness allowed in simulation results
A SoilProfileCollection object with
n simulated profiles, each containing the same number of horizons and same data as
This function generates a collection of simulated soil profiles based on the horizon thickness data associated with a single "template" profile. Simulation is based on sampling from a family of Gaussian distribution with means defined by the "template" profile and standard deviation defined by the user.
