CO2 {fields} | R Documentation |

This is an example of moderately large spatial data set and consists of simulated CO2 concentrations that are irregularly sampled from a lon/lat grid. Also included is the complete CO2 field (CO2.true) used to generate the synthetic observations.

data(CO2)

The format of `CO2`

is a list with two components:

lon.lat: 26633x2 matrix of the longitude/latitude locations. These are a subset of a larger lon/lat grid (see example below).

y: 26633 CO2 concentrations in parts per million.

The format of `CO2.true`

is a list in "image" format with components:

x longitude grid values.

y latitude grid values.

z an image matrix with CO2 concentration in parts per million

mask a logical image that indicates with grid locations were selected for the synthetic data set

`CO2`

.

This data was generously provided by Dorit Hammerling and Randy Kawa as a test example for the spatial analysis of remotely sensed (i.e. satellite) and irregular observations. The synthetic data is based on a true CO2 field simulated from a geophysical, numerical model.
