function, gains a`RunOptions`

element which is a list and contains 2 sub-elements:`WarmUpQsim`

(vector series of simulated discharge on the warm-up period) and`Param`

(vector of the model parameter values). (#123)`plot.OutputsModel()`

gains a`AxisTS`

argument in order to manage x-axis representing calendar dates and times. It avoids to display ugly x-axis. (#122)

`FUN_CRIT`

argument has been removed from the`ErrorCrit()`

function. (#81)

`SeriesAggreg()`

now correctly reorders regime time series when the monthly regime is computed from a time series that does not start in January. It also keeps original`data.frame`

column names. (#133)`DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()`

now correctly extract HypsoData values for each elevation layers. The selected indices were wrong (one less than expected) (#144)`CreateIniStates()`

does not return anymore an error message when`IntStore`

is set and`RunModel_GR5H`

is used. (#144)

`RunModel_Lag()`

now handles warm-up period simulation (set in`CreateRunOptions()`

). (#132)

`PE_Oudin()`

can use inconsistent time series. It allows to mixing time series from different stations. (#134)- Added the use of
`.GetFeatModel()`

in`CreateCalibOptions()`

and`CreateIniStates()`

functions in order to simplified their codes. (#111) - Added the
`.FunTransfo`

in order to manage the parameter transformations and to simplified the code of the`CreateCalibOptions()`

function (#111) - Added the
`.ArgumentsCheckGR()`

function in order to check the arguments of the`RunModel_*()`

functions and simplified their codes. (#129) - Added the
`.GetOutputsModelGR()`

function in order to manage the outputs of the`RunModel_*()`

functions and simplified their codes. (#129) - The code of the

value is now correct when there are more than a single upstream basin. (#103) - Fixed bug in
`RunModel_Lag()`

. The`StateEnd`

value is now correct when the upstream flow unit is mm/time step. (#104) - Fixed bug in

`LengthHydro`

must now be set in kilometers (not anymore in meters) in the`CreateInputsModel()`

function. (#112)`TransfoParam_GR5H()`

now use the same transformation as`TransfoParam_GR4H()`

for the X1 parameter. The previous transformation set by Ficchì seems unnecessary as it provokes irrealistically high X1 values. (#50)

- The
`RunModel*()`

functions now run faster. The computation times are significantly shorter for long times series with many time steps (e.g. hourly times series), due to a better management of the missing values in and out the Fortran codes. Only simulation computation times have been improved (it is largely invisible to the user for calibration computation times). (#113) - The external calibration algorithms used in ‘param_optim’ and
‘param_mcmc’ vignettes now run faster. The
`RunModel_*()`

functions used during the parameter estimation process now run faster because the outputs contain only the simulated flows (see the`Outputs_Sim`

argument in the`CreateRunOptions()`

help page). - Added
`.FeatModels()`

and`.GetFeatModel()`

functions in order to repectively store and get model features (e.g. name, number of parameters, time unit). Therefore the codes of the`CreateInputsModel()`

and the`CreateRunOptions()`

functions have been simplified. (#106)

`frun_GR5H.f90`

. (#93)

- Coerce
`character`

dates into`POSIXlt`

in`RunModel_GR1A()`

example and in`SeriesAggreg()`

tests in order to avoid bad subsetting on time series due to mixing UTC and local time (error returned on macOS flavors). (#94)

- Added
`SeriesAggreg`

S3 method with functions for`InputsModel`

,`OutputsModel`

,`list`

,`data.frame`

private function in order to choose automatically the`ConvertFun`

to apply on each element of objects used in`SeriesAggreg.InputsModel()`

and`SeriesAggreg.OutputsModel()`

. - Added

data.frame that allows the user to see what names of list items or data.frame column names are guessed and eventually customise this correspondence table. `PE_Oudin()`

now presents a`RunFortran`

argument to run the code in Fortran or in R. The Fortran mode is the fastest. (#62)- Added

argument is now deprecated in`SeriesAggreg()`

and replaced by the`Format`

argument. (#41) - The deprecated
`RunSnowModule`

argument has been removed from the`CreateRunOptions()`

function. (#23)

- Fixed bug in
`SeriesAggreg()`

. The function now runs when`TimeLag >= 3600`

. (#41) - Fixed bug in
`SeriesAggreg()`

. The function now runs when the time series contain some columns entirely filled with missing values. (#43) - Fixed bug in
`RunModel_GR1A()`

. Reversed PotEvap and Precip outputs are now reordered (in the previous versions PotEvap contained the precipitation values and Precip contained the evapotranspiration values, the Qsim values were already correct). (#65)

- Added output to
`RunModel_GR2M()`

function (Ps). (#51) `PE_Oudin()`

can now run for several locations (i.e. several latitudes) in the Fortran mode (`RunFortran = TRUE`

). In this case`Lat`

must be of the same length as`Temp`

. (#62)`RunModel()`

now allows to run semi-distributed GR models. (#34)- The
`ConvertFun`

argument of the`SeriesAggreg()`

function can now be set to names of aggregation functions that return value of length 1 (not only`"sum"`

or`"mean"`

, but e.g.`"min"`

,`"max"`

,`"Q95"`

). (#82)

- The
`.FortranOutputs()`

function is no longer exported in the namespace. `RunModel_GR1A()`

now uses the Fortran version of the model code. This code is no longer duplicated: the R version which was used was removed. (#65)- Character argument verification now use partial matching in
`PE_Oudin()`

and`SeriesAggreg()`

functions. (#37) `RunModel_*()`

funcions were cleaned up, with no effect on their outputs. (#14)`.ErrorCrit()`

`RunModel_GR5H()`

documentation. (#49) - The
`Exch`

was renames`AExch`

in the`RunModel_GR2M()`

output. (#87) - Added ‘Es’ and ‘Ps’ on the GR2M diagram available in the
`RunModel_GR2M()`

help page. (#88) - The
`plot.OutputsModel()`

function does not check anymore the time step by comparing the calculation of the difference of the last two time steps because it is already checked by the class of the`OutputsModel`

object, which is therefore assumed to be necessarily valid. (#56)

- Implement automatic tests in the package. (#52)

- ‘airGR’ now depends on R >= 3.1.0 because of the use of the
`anyNA`

function. - The ‘hydroPSO’ package is back on CRAN and it is again suggested (cf. the ‘param_optim’ vignette). (#38)
- For more safety, the following “basic” packages are now imported : ‘graphics’, ‘grDevices’, ‘stats’, ’utils. (#74)

- The run period is reduced in the example of the
`Imax()`

function in order to run faster. - The ‘hydroPSO’ package is no longer suggested (but the code linked to its use and is always present in the ‘param_optim’ vignette).

of the ‘airGR’ package. When you use ‘airGR’ in your work, please always
cite both the article and the manual. The last one allows to know the
version of the package that is used in order to enhance reproducible
research. The references can be displayed with the
`citation("airGR")`

command.

- Fixed bug in
`Imax()`

. The default value of the`TestedValues`

argument was wrong due to a mistyped argument name in the`seq()`

function.

now allows to draw actual evapotranspiration when`which = "ActEvap"`

or`which = "All"`

(overlaid to potential evapotranspiration if already drawn). (#2)- Added
`RunModel_GR5H()`

and`RunModel_CemaNeigeGR5H()`

functions to run the hourly model GR5H (with or without the CemaNeige module). These models present an optional additionnal interception store. (#13) - Added
`Imax()`

which allows to estimate the maximum capacity of the GR5H interception store. (#13)

- Fixed bug in
`TransfoParam_GR1A()`

. The number of model parameters was wrong (2 instead of 1) which caused an error during the GR1A model calibration. (#1) - Fixed bug in
`plot.OutputsModel()`

. The function does not return any error message when`log_scale = TRUE`

,`Qobs = NULL`

and user want to draw flows time series. - Fixed bug in
`RunModel_*GR*()`

. The functions do not return any error message anymore due to slightly negative values returned by GR4H, GR4J, GR5J or GR6J Fortran codes (the message was returned by`CreateIniStates()`

when the final states were created). The`RunModel_*GR*()`

functions now return zero instead of these slightly negative values, except for the ExpStore where negatives values are allowed. - Fixed bug in the
`.ErrorCrit()`

function. The Box-Cox transformation formula is now corrected when the`ErrorCrit*()`

. The function now runs correctly when`IndPeriod_WarmUp = 0L`

in`CreateRunOptions()`

in order to completely disable the warm-up period (e.g. to perform a forecast form a given initial state). - Fixed bug in
`CreateIniStates()`

. The function now returns the right number of end states when CemaNeige is used without hysteresis. - Fixed bug in the
`RunModel_CemaNeige*()`

functions. G and Gthr end states are no more inverted in the output values.

- Spurious flows set to
`NA`

into the`BasinObs`

time series of the`L0123001`

dataset.

`CreateInputsCrit()`

now allows power (as a numeric or as a character) and the Box-Cox transformations in the`transfo`

or`"Error"`

.`plot.OutputsModel()`

now allows new values for the which argument:`"all"`

corresponds to all graphs,`"synth"`

corresponds to the main graphs (default value; corresponding to`"all"`

in the previous versions of the package) (i.e.`c("Precip", "Temp", "SnowPack", "Flows", "Regime", "CumFreq", "CorQQ")`

),`"ts"`

corresponds to the time series graphs (i.e.`c("Precip", "PotEvap", "Temp", "SnowPack", "Flows")`

) and “perf” corresponds to the performance graphs (i.e.`c("Error", "Regime", "CumFreq", "CorQQ")`

).

`.ErrorCrit()`

private function added to check inputs into`ErrorCrit_*()`

functions were simplified accordingly.`CreateInputsCrit()`

now returns`FUN_CRIT`

as a character string.- An example is addeed to illustred the use of the

gains a`TimeLag`

argument that corresponds to a numeric value indicating a time lag (in seconds) for the time series aggregation (useful to aggregate hourly time series to the daily time step for instance). In addition, the function now accepts input dates in both`POSIXt`

formats (`POSIXct`

and`POSIXlt`

). The output is in`POSIXct`

format.`plot_OutputsModel()`

gains a`log_scale`

argument in order to plot the flow with a log scale.- A tutorial is available online on the following link:

argument that was redundant with the`FixedParam`

argument. The`Calibration_Michel()`

was modified to take into account this change by using directly`FixedParam`

, but this is transparent to the user.`CreateCalibOptions()`

loses the`StartParam`

argument that was not used.

- The value
`sort`

for the`transfo`

argument of`CreateInputsCrit()`

was not taken into account. It is now fixed.

- The
`RunModel_GR6J()`

and`RunModel_CemaNeigeGR6J()`

models were modified back to versions previous to 1.0.1 to prevent from unwanted efficiency criteria deterioration related to the calibration with`Calibration_Michel()`

. The actual model codes were not modified but the`TransfoParam_GR6J()`

and`CreateCalibOptions()`

functions were modified regarding the X5 parameter. It is strongly advised to use airGR 1.0.2 for the`RunModel_GR6J()`

and`RunModel_CemaNeigeGR6J()`

functions if you are using`Calibration_Michel()`

, as they are much more efficient. In case you were using your own calibration algorithm, you will not notice any difference.

`CreateInputsModel()`

and`DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()`

functions now allow both`POSIXt`

formats (`POSIXct`

and`POSIXlt`

).

- The
`Calibration_HBAN()`

and`DataAltiExtrapolation_HBAN()`

functions have respectively been renamed as`Calibration_Michel()`

and`DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()`

after the names of their creators. - The
`Calibration_optim()`

function has been removed from the package. - The silent mode is now defined by the
`verbose = TRUE`

argument (formerly`quiet = FALSE`

) in the following functions:`Calibration()`

,`Calibration_Michel()`

,`CreateInputsModel()`

,`CreateRunOptions()`

,`DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()`

,`ErrorCrit()`

,`ErrorCrit_KGE()`

,`ErrorCrit_KGE2()`

,`ErrorCrit_NSE()`

,`ErrorCrit_RMSE()`

,`plot_OutputsModel()`

,`SeriesAggreg()`

.

- The GR5J model has been modified: previously, two unit hydrographs
were used, now only one is remaining. As a consequence, simulations from
the GR5J (
`RunModel_GR5J()`

function) and CemaNeige (`RunModel_CemaNeigeGR5J()`

function) models will be different. - An important proportion of the transformations of the parameters
have been modified (
`TransfoParam_*()`

functions). Since this modifies the local search, calibration results will be different . - The quantiles of the parameters have been recalculated with the new
transformations (
`CreateCalibOptions()`

function). Since these quantiles constitute the starting point of the calibration algorithm, calibration results will be different.

- The Fortran model core codes have been modified:
- optimisation of the codes for fastening of computation;
- simplification of the internal variables for easier reading and understanding.

- The list of the contributors and authors is now full.
- The references of the package has been updated; they are returned by
the following R-command
`citation("airGR")`

.

- Fixed bug in
`CreateInputsModel()`

that was related to the handling of missing values. - Fixed bug in
`CreateRunOptions()`

that prevented the correct use of the`IniResLevels`

argument (to manually set the filling rate of the production and routing stores).

- Removal of an unnecessary warning when
`IndPeriod_WarmUp = 0`

.

- Modification of namespace file to ensure proper use under linux without compilation issues.

- Three new hydrological models:
`RunModel_GR4H() function for`

GR4H (hourly),`RunModel_GR2M()`

function for GR2M (monthly) and`RunModel_GR1A()`

function for GR1A (yearly). - New function
`SeriesAggreg()`

to easily aggreg timesteps.

- Fixed bug in
`ErrorCrit_RMSE()`

which led to incorrect calibration (the criterion was maximised instead of minimised).

- Update of the functions
`CreateRunOptions()`

,`CreateCalibOptions()`

and`plot_OutputsModel()`

to handle the new models. - Modification of CemaNeige Fortran code to add an update of Gratio after the SnowPack update (no impact on snow simulation).

- Improvement of the
`plot_OutputsModel()`

function to allow a selection among available plots. - Minor update in
`ErrorCrit_KGE()`

and`ErrorCrit_KGE2()`

to handle case when only one values in not NA. - Update of the scripts in airGR-advanced-example to match the
structures of the
`BasinData`

objects. - Correction of formatting issue in airGR-advanced-example regarding the “List_HypsoData.txt” file.

- New argument in many functions (
`quiet = TRUE`

or`FALSE`

) to choose if the warnings should be suppressed or not.

- The
`CalibrationAlgo_*()`

functions were renamed into`Calibration_*()`

.

- Fixed bug in
`CreateCalibOptions()`

to handle models with only one parameter. - Fixed bug in
`Calibration_HBAN()`

. The function was not working properly with models having only one parameter.

- CemaNeige users must now specify one
`MeanAnSolidPrecip`

for each elevation layer. The`CreateRunOptions()`

function is impacted. - CemaNeige users can now specify the mean elevation of the input
series (before it was always considered equal to the catchment median
elevation). The impacted functions are
`CreateInputsModel()`

and`DataAltiExtrapolation_HBAN()`

. - New architecture with better format verification procedure (using classes) and simpler setting of default configuration.
- New architecture where the model, calibration and error functions are in the arguments of the functions (the exotic use of “generic function” created by the users has been removed).
- Improved documentation and examples.

- Improvements allowing the arrival of new models.
- Improvements of the argument verifications in
`CreateInputsModel()`

,`CreateRunOptions()`

,`CreateInputsCrit()`

,`CreateCalibOptions()`

. - Improvements of all the
`ErrorCrit()`

functions to better account for the cases with constant flow values or local zeros. - Improvement of the
`plot_OutputsModel`

function (to handle 0 in Qobs and Qsim). - Improved documentation.

- Additional functions for results plotting (the ‘zoo’ package is required for some of them).
- Add multi-objective calibration using
`nsga2()`

(the ‘mco’ package is required). - The field Multiplier has been added in the ErrorCrit() outputs, to indicate whether the criterion is an error (to minimise) or and efficiency (to maximise). This allows to provide real efficiency values in the outputs e.g. NSE[Q] instead of (-1) × NSE[Q].

`EfficiencyCrit()`

have been replaced by`ErrorCrit()`

to avoid misunderstanding (by default, the algorithms minimise the error criterion).

- RC11 bug correction: the automatic selection of the warm-up period was not working properly when no data was available from warm-up (i.e. when the user had set the run to start at the very first index).
- RC10 bug correction: the
`CalibrationAlgo_HBAN()`

function was not working in the very rare case when the diagonal search was activated and lead to a set outside the authorised range. - RC9 bug correction: the
`CalibrationAlgo_HBAN()`

function was not working properly with models having only one parameter. - RC8 bug correction of the
`ModelDefaultIniOptions()`

function (this bug was introduced in the RC7 and caused an error when`IndPeriod_WarmUp = NULL`

. - RC7 bug correction of the
`ModelDefaultIniOptions()`

function (the automatic selection of one year for warm-up was not handling properly missing data). - RC6 correction of the help files (the description of CemaNeige parameters were inverted).
- RC5 differs from previous releases in the way the data are read and
stored (in a list instead of individual vectors). The package is
similar, only the examples of Main and the files in MyScriptBlocks have
changed. All basin data are now stored inside a list named
`BasinData`

. This will greatly ease the future use of Rdata files (instead of txt files) as storage format for the time series of observation.

- The definition of the generic function is now made in a much simpler
way (e.g. see
`DefineFunctions_Model()`

or`DefineFunctions_ErrorCrit()`

).

- Code improvements to reduce the computation time.
- Clearer instructions for the adding and modification of a model.
- Improvements of the documentation.

- The
`SelectPer`

arguments are replaced by`IndPeriod`

to ease understanding. - The
`PE`

arguments are replaced by`PotEvap()`

to ease understanding. - The
`Fsol`

arguments are replaced by`FracSolidPrecip`

to ease understanding.

- R <= 2.15 in not supported by default.
- The check that
`SelectPer_Run()`

is continuous is now made in the`CheckArg()`

functions. - Check of the model functioning time step.
- Name of the calibration criterion provided in
`OutputsAlgo()`

.

- Missing values in Fortran are now -999.999 instead of -9.999.

- New
`EfficiencyCrit_NSE_sqrtQ()`

function to compute NSE criterion on sqrt flows.

- Incorrect arguments in the call to
`RunModelAndCrit`

from`CalibrationAlgo_optim_stats`

and`CalibrationAlgo_nlminb_stats`

. `CalibrationAlgo_nlminb_stats`

argument was wrongly defined in`DefineFunctions_CalibrationAlgo()`

(`optim`

instead of`nlminb`

).- Format checking for
`RunOptions`

was incorrectly made in`CheckArg()`

function.
