exPrior: Prior Distributions Using a Bayesian Hierarchical Framework

The aim of this package is to provide practitioners of statistics in geology, hydrology, etc. a tool to derive prior distributions for Bayesian inference. Prior distributions summarize knowledge from studies at similar sites. The main features of the package are to (i) generate prior distributions based on external data only; (ii) to account for possible autocorrelation in the data, and (iii) to account for available soft data, say, in the form of expert information on bounds and moments.
