Multi-Layers estimation


mlayer.krig(dbin, dbout=NA, model = model.input(), neigh = neigh.input(), 
  	    flag.z = TRUE, flag.vel = FALSE, flag.cumul=FALSE,flag.ext = FALSE, 
	    flag.std=FALSE, irf.rank = 0, match.time = FALSE, 
	    colrefd = NA, colreft = NA, colrefb = NA, verbose=FALSE,
	    radix = "MLayers", = db.locmod())



The db-class structure containing the 2-D data file. The file must be 2-D and contain one Z-variable corresponding to the sample depth and a locator "Layer".


The db-class structure containing the 2-D ouput file where the additional variables must be defined and where the results will be stored.


The model-class structure containing the Model information. The number of variables defines the number of layers


The neigh-class structure containing the Neighborhood information. The neighborhood is not used yet.


When TRUE, the results are converted back into depth surfaces. When FALSE, the results are provided either in thickness (if flag.vel=FALSE) or in interval velocity (if flag.vel=TRUE)


Should be TRUE if the estimation must be performed using velocities (the Model should correspond to interval velocities) or FALSE when working with depth (the Model should correspond to interval thickness). If flag.vel is TRUE, the layer time maps should be defined in the grid output file (locator "time" or "f" if match_time is TRUE).


Should be TRUE if the calculations must be performed in Depth rather than in Thickness. This is essential when considering the standard deviation of estimation errors.


Should be TRUE if External Drift should be used. Then the grid output file should contain the corresponding maps (locator "f").


When TRUE, the standard deviation of the estimation error must be calculated.


Rank of the Intrisic Random Function. Should be -1 (for strict stationarity), 0 (for intrinsic) or 1 (for a first order drift).


When TRUE, the external drift maps and the time maps coincide in the output grid file. They are both defined using the locator "f".


Rank of the attribute containing the Reference Depth map. If 0, the reference depth is set to 0


Rank of the attribute containing the Reference Time map. If 0, the reference time is set to 0.


Rank of the attribute containing the Bottom Depth map (if defined).


Verbose option which recapitulates the main options of the multi-layer estimation.


Radix of the name given to the variables storing the results in the target Db.

Decides whether or not the newly created variables will have their locator defined or not. For more information, see db.locmod.
