Acidity: Acidity index of lakes in North-Central Wisconsin

AcidityR Documentation

Acidity index of lakes in North-Central Wisconsin

Description

Acidity index measured in a sample of 155 lakes in North-Central Wisconsin.

Crawford et al. (1992) and Crawford (1994) analyzed these data as a mixture of normal distributions on the log-scale. Richardson and Green (1997) used a normal mixture estimated using reversible jump MCMC.

Usage
