ANOVA to Estimate if ‘Triples’ are a Valid Subset

Share:

Description

Function to execute a simple ANOVA to determine if the Field Duplicates are a valid subset of the regional coverage samples, and if the Field Duplicates pairs have ‘equivalent’ variability. Optionally the data may be logarithmically (base 10) transformed.

Usage

1
2
gx.triples.fgx(x, RepStat, xname = deparse(substitute(x)),
	log = FALSE)

Arguments

x

a file of regional coverage and field duplicate data.

RepStat

the Replicate Status code.

xname

by default the character string for the data file name, x, is used for the table title. An alternate title can be displayed with xname = "text string", see Examples.

log

if a logarithmic transformation of the data is required to meet homogeneity of variance considerations (i.e. severe heteroscedasticity) set log = TRUE. This is also advisable if the range of the observations exceeds 1.5 orders of magnitude.

Note

Any less than detection limit values represented by negative values, or zeros or other numeric codes representing blanks in the data, must be removed prior to executing this function, see ltdl.fix.df.

Any NAs in the data must also be removed prior to running the triples.fgx function. This requires care as the data must be in complete duplicate sets.

## Make test data available
data(triples.test2)
attach(triples.test2)

## Carry out ANOVAs for equivalence of variances
gx.triples.fgx(Ba_ppm, RS, xname = 
"Ba (mg/kg - Aqua Regia digestion) in <2 mm unmilled C-horizon soil")

## Detach test data
detach(triples.test2)
