R Seminar Series Recordings

R is a powerful program for all types of scientific data analysis. Because R uses scripts, and is free, open source software (FOSS), it is also a very useful tool in doing reproducible research.

Global Water Futures and the Centre for Hydrology hosted a 5-part R Seminar series introducing the R program and how to use it. Below are recordings of these seminars.

  • Part 1: Introduction to 'R' - coming soon
  • Part 2: R Basics I - Working with Data - coming soon
  • Part 3: R Basics II - Automating your Analyses - no recording available due to technical difficulties
