‘Using R in Hydrology’ workshop, EGU (April 2018)

We’re delighted to announce that the ‘Using R in Hydrology’ workshop will be running again (for a second year) at EGU 2018!

Session SC1.19/HS12.4 – Using R in Hydrology (co-organized)


Convener: Louise Slater
Co-Conveners: Shaun Harrigan, Tobias Gauster, Alexander Hurley, Guillaume Thirel.

Wondering why or how to use R in hydrology? You’re in the right place! In this short course, you will learn how R is applied in a range of hydrological research settings from a number of guest lecturers.

Topics for 2018 include:
– Recent R updates and packages
– Statistical analysis of hydroclimatic time-series
– Data visualisation
– An introduction to the ‘lfstat’ (low flow statistics) package
– Hydrological modelling (airGR) and teaching modelling (airGRteaching)

This session is aimed at researchers who are interested in hearing more about R as well as those who are advanced R programmers wanting to discuss recent developments in an open environment.

This session is organised in cooperation with the Young Hydrologic Society (YHS; https://younghs.com/)
