acidity: The Acidity Data files for GAMLSS

Description

The data shows the acidity index for 155 lakes in the Northeastern United States (previously analysed as a mixture of gaussian distributions on the log scale by Crawford et al.(1992, 1994)). These 155 observations are the log acidity indices for the lakes.
