##### Kendall tau trend with continuity correction for raster time-series

Calculates a nonparametric statistic for a monotonic trend based on the Kendall tau statistic and the Theil-Sen slope modification

##### Usage
raster.kendall(
x,
intercept = FALSE,
p.value = FALSE,
z.value = FALSE,
confidence = FALSE,
tau = FALSE,
...
)
##### Arguments
x

A rasterStack object with at least 5 layers

intercept

(FALSE/TRUE) return a raster with the pixel wise intercept values

p.value

(FALSE/TRUE) return a raster with the pixel wise p.values

z.value

(FALSE/TRUE) return a raster with the pixel wise z.values

confidence

(FALSE/TRUE) return a raster with the pixel wise 95 pct confidence levels

tau

(FALSE/TRUE) return a raster with the pixel wise tau correlation values

...

Additional arguments passed to the raster overlay function

##### Details

This function implements Kendall's nonparametric test for a monotonic trend using the Theil-Sen (Theil 1950; Sen 1968; Siegel 1982) method to estimate the slope and related confidence intervals.

##### Value

Depending on arguments, a raster layer or rasterBrick object containing:

• raster layer 1 slope for trend, always returned

• raster layer 2 intercept for trend if intercept TRUE

• raster layer 3 p value for trend fit if p.value TRUE

• raster layer 4 z value for trend fit if z.value TRUE

• raster layer 5 lower confidence level at 95 pct, if confidence TRUE

• raster layer 6 upper confidence level at 95 pct, if confidence TRUE

• raster layer 7 Kendall's tau two-sided test, reject null at 0, if tau TRUE
