Dear R and hydrological community,

The first public (beta) release of two new R packages are now available on CRAN:

############
# hydroTSM #
############

  1. hydroTSM is a package for management and analysis of hydrological time series:

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/hydroTSM/

hydroTSM includes S3 functions for management, analysis, interpolation and plot of hydrological time series, mainly oriented to hydrological modelling tasks. So far, it only works with daily / monthly / seasonal / annual time series.

The focus of this package has been put in providing a collection of functions useful for the daily work of hydrologists, and although an effort was made to optimise each function as much as possible, functionality has had priority over speed.

############
# hydroGOF #
############

2) hydroGOF is a package for comparison of simulated and observed hydrological time series:

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/hydroGOF/

hydroGOF includes S3 functions implementing both statistical and graphical goodness-of-fit measures between observed and simulated values, mainly oriented to be used during the calibration, validation, and application of hydrological models.

Missing values in observed and/or simulated values can be removed before computations.

# Beta Notice #
################

hydroTSM and hydroGOF have been tested for more than a year, but its development began in early 2008, during the Ph.D programme of the author at the University of Trento.
Both packages are reasonably stable, but they are currently flagged as beta work, in order to get some feedback from a broader audience.

Bugs / comments / questions / collaboration of any kind are very welcomed, and in particular, datasets that can be included in the packages for academic purposes.

Kind regards,

Mauricio Zambrano-Bigiarini
