The bamr package facilitates Bayesian AMHG + Manning discharge estimation using stream slope, width, and partial cross-section area. It includes functions to preprocess and visualize data, perform Bayesian inference using Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (via models pre-written in the Stan language), and analyze the results.
As of version 0.1.6, the recommended installation method is to use the drat package, which facilitates using
install.packages() to get the latest release of bamr. Windows users get the added benefit of having a pre-compiled binary installation, saving a significant amount of compilation time and memory overhead.
The following commands will get the drat package, give R access to the repository containing bamr, and install the bamr package from that repository.
install.packages("drat") # Get the drat package drat::addRepo("markwh") # Add the repository containing the bamr package install.packages("bamr")
