How to Use the Online LS Calculator Tool
This tool will convert Julian Dates into the seasonal indicator (LS), a value for the date of the year that is compatible with KRC.
Directions on Using the LS Tool:
- Use the drop-down menu to pick a date. Valid for years: 1607 to 2143.
- Once you change the drop-down menu to your desired date, the "Approximate Input" next to the drop-down menu will change.
- Take this input and enter it into the "Date Input" bar.
- Adjust the precision using the "Precision" drop-down menu. The precision changes the mean, standard deviation and minimum and maximum offset error for the new LS value allowed by the Tool.
- Click submit.
