FUSE model and parameters information

A quick post to show how to find what model building decisions, options (name and ID number) and depending parameters are associated with a given FUSE model.

First of all, install/load the fuse package:

    install.packages("fuse", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")
    library(fuse)

Load devtools and source the gist below (it contains a function called FUSEinfo)

    require(devtools)
    devtools::source_gist("https://gist.github.com/cvitolo/65d72b4f756126839f85")

Choose one of FUSE’s models:

    mid <- 60 # This is TOPMODEL

Run the function FUSEinfo using mid as input:

    FUSEinfo(mid=60)

The result of FUSEinfo is a dataframe containing 32 columns.

  rferr arch1 arch2 qsurf qperc esoil qintf q_tdh rferr_add rferr_mlt maxwatr_1 maxwatr_2 fracten
1    12    21    34    43    51    62    71    82     FALSE      TRUE      TRUE      TRUE    TRUE
  frchzne fprimqb rtfrac1 percrte percexp sacpmlt sacpexp percfrac iflwrte baserte qb_powr qb_prms

  qbrate_2a qbrate_2b sareamax axv_bexp loglamb tishape timedelay
1     FALSE     FALSE    FALSE    FALSE    TRUE    TRUE      TRUE

The first 8 columns contain the model building decisions: rferr (rainfall error), arch1 (upper soil layer), arch2 (lower soil layer), qsurf (runoff mechanism), qperc (percolation), esoil (evaporation), qintfl (interflow) and q_tdh (routing). See the table below for more information:

The remaining 24 columns list the parameters (see table below). If the value of a parameter is TRUE, it means that parameter is used by the model, FALSE means the parameter is not used.
