Introduction to R for aquatic research

R-OH, a joke about R as a functional group in an alcohol molecule

The Introductory session of this workshop will provide an introduction to the basics of working in R. By the end of this session, you should be comfortable working through these and other examples on your own in the future so you can learn more about the program. During this session, you will be exposed to a broad overview of programming in R, read in data from external files, learn to work with “packages”, do some basic data manipulation and summary statistics, and use data to make some basic graphs. We will also cover basic syntax and mechanics of the programming language to facilitate discussion of more advanced topics during the Intermediate session.
