ES 60600 - Field Data Collection and its Presentation


(4) Field data collection underpins the environmental and marine sciences through its analysis and presentation. The goal of this course is to integrate standard data collection in a field and group setting with its presentation through the intermediate steps of data input into simple databases, error-checking, graphical and elementary statistical analysis. This course introduces using the statistical package R with data collected by students in the field portion of the class. 

Students will participate in either the Ecology course (SC 33000 ) month-long local field experience in the Fall session (7 hours 40 minutes/week), or a revised month-long SC 25000  local field experience in the Fall session (7 hours 40 minutes/week).
 
Students will also participate in MT 22000  where the data from the field experience provides the needed hands-on data cleaning, organization, sharing, analysis and presentation using elementary statistical concepts and R.   Prerequisite: Graduate standing, a science course, and a first course in college statistics. Offered Fall
