# R scripts for fitting composite curves of charcoal data

The intention of these pages is to describe and document the analysis steps that were developed as a set of Fortran programs, and are now implemented in the R paleofire package, with a focus on GCDv3 (Marlon et al., 2016). The scripts also provide a “point-of-departure” for the development and testing of additional analysis procedures that are not currently implemented in the paleofire package.

Contents:

• Overview: Discussion of analysis steps
• Analyses: Annotated (RMarkdown) code for the analyses
• Code: R code that can be saved and run as scripts
