Bias correction

Quantile-quantile mapping (Themeßl et al. 2012, Grenier et al. 2015) is provided with ClimateTools.jl through the function qqmap.

qqmap(obs::ClimGrid, ref::ClimGrid, fut::ClimGrid; method::String="Additive", detrend::Bool=true, window::Int=15, rankn::Int=50, thresnan::Float64=0.1, keep_original::Bool=false, interp = Linear(), extrap = Flat())
