June 21, 2024

This dataset contains all of the supporting materials to accompany Helsel, D.R., Hirsch, R.M., Ryberg, K.R., Archfield, S.A., and Gilroy, E.J., 2020, Statistical methods in water resources: U.S. Geological Survey Techniques and Methods, book 4, chapter A3, 454 p., [Supersedes USGS Techniques of Water-Resources Investigations, book 4, chapter A3, version 1.1.]. Supplemental material (SM) for each chapter are available to re-create all examples and figures, and to solve the exercises at the end of each chapter, with relevant datasets provided in an electronic format readable by R. The SM provide (1) datasets as .Rdata files for immediate input into R, (2) datasets as .csv files for input into R or for use with other software programs, (3) R functions that are used in the textbook but not part of a published R package, (4) R scripts to produce virtually all of the figures in the book, and (5) solutions to the exercises as .html and .Rmd files. The suffix .Rmd refers to the file format for code written in the R Markdown language; the .Rmd file that is provided in the SM was used to generate the .html file containing the solutions to the exercises. All data used in the in-text examples, figures, and exercises are not new and already available through publicly-available data portals.
