Percent Bias between `sim`

and `obs`

, with treatment of missing values.

pbias(sim, obs, ...) ## Default S3 method: pbias(sim, obs, na.rm=TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'data.frame' pbias(sim, obs, na.rm=TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'matrix' pbias(sim, obs, na.rm=TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'zoo' pbias(sim, obs, na.rm=TRUE, ...)

`sim` |
numeric, zoo, matrix or data.frame with simulated values |

`obs` |
numeric, zoo, matrix or data.frame with observed values |

`na.rm` |
a logical value indicating whether 'NA' should be stripped before the computation proceeds. |

`...` |
further arguments passed to or from other methods. |

*
PBIAS = 100 * [ sum( sim - obs ) / sum( obs ) ] *

Percent bias (PBIAS) measures the average tendency of the simulated values to be larger or smaller than their observed ones.

The optimal value of PBIAS is 0.0, with low-magnitude values indicating accurate model simulation. Positive values indicate overestimation bias, whereas negative values indicate model underestimation bias

Percent bias between `sim`

and `obs`

. The result is given in percentage (%)

If `sim`

and `obs`

are matrixes, the returned value is a vector, with the percent bias between each column of `sim`

and `obs`

.

`obs`

and `sim`

has to have the same length/dimension

The missing values in `obs`

and `sim`

are removed before the computation proceeds, and only those positions with non-missing values in `obs`

and `sim`

are considered in the computation
