KarstID provides the user a toolbox to analyse karst spring discharge time series and characterize karst systems hydrological functioning. The software supports statistical, recession curves, classified discharges and signal (simple correlational and spectral analyses). The completion of the analyses are facilitated with the graphical interface. The classification is based on the proposal of Cinkus et al. (2021), which use three indicators of functioning derived from Mangin’s recession model (Mangin, 1975).
KarstID is build with the R Shiny framework (Chang et al., 2021) and is embedded into an R package (R Core Team, 2021), which make the installation and launch easy even for non-programmers. It is also free, open-source and actively developed on a developer community platform.
