Groundwater Data Analysis Course – online

The IAH (Irish Group) propose running a groundwater data analysis course online, with Dan Lapworth from the BGS plus other contributors.

The course will introduce the use of R (statistical and graphical programming freeware) which can handle and run repeated analyses on large volumes of data such as groundwater chemistry and water level data.
