New: Bchron website
Bchron is a Bayesian chronology model implemented in R.
The package enables quick calibration of radiocarbon dates under various calibration curves (including user generated ones); Age-depth modelling as per the algorithm of Haslett and Parnell (2008); Relative sea level rate estimation incorporating time uncertainty in polynomial regression models; and non-parametric phase modelling via Gaussian mixtures as a means to determine the activity of a site (and as an alternative to the Oxcal function SUM).
To install the development version of the package type:
# If required install remotes: if(!require(remotes)) install.packages('remotes') remotes::install_github('andrewcparnell/Bchron')
You can then explore the package with:
library(Bchron) help(Bchronology) # Help on the chronology modelling function help(BchronCalibrate) # Help on the calibrate function
To install the stable version of the package go to R and type:
Now start using Bchron!
