Fourth Post – October 1st

During our fourth week of class, I was unfortunately very preoccupied with work from some other classes (as I had an exam last week and another one next week), so I have not yet completed the goal I set last week of locating a dataset on sea level rise data. I made a plan last week to either locate a relevant dataset online, or get in contact with a researcher or professor from one of the local research institutions (SMAST, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, etc), and while I have not yet completed that goal, I am hoping to do so by mid-next week. Despite this minor setback, I was able to attend the class session on Wednesday, during which we discussed some applications of the z-score in analyzing the spread, skewness, and “peak”-ness of given data, as well as how to evaluate such metrics using RStudio.
