ArcticLake {Ball}R Documentation

Arctic lake sediment samples of different water depth

Description

Sand, silt and clay compositions of 39 sediment samples of different water depth in an Arctic lake.

Format

ArcticLake$depth: water depth (in meters).

ArcticLake$x: compositions of three covariates: sand, silt, and clay.

Details

Sand, silt and clay compositions of 39 sediment samples at different water depth (in meters) in an Arctic lake. The additional feature is a concomitant variable or covariate, water depth, which may account for some of the variation in the compositions. In statistical terminology, we have a multivariate regression problem with sediment composition as predictors and water depth as a response. All row percentage sums to 100, except for rounding errors.
