R-Instat Tutorials

To help you become familiar with R-Instat before you arrive at the workshop we have created a set of introductory tutorials for you to try out.

Even if you were not able to download R-Instat, these documents are still useful reading as there are many screen shots and explanations of R-Instat's functionality.

There are three tutorial documents below. Part 1 is focused on producing graphs. Part 2 shows an introductory climatic data analysis. Part 3 is a more detailed guide on preparing climatic data for analysis.

R-Instat is a general statistics package, with an added special menu for climatic analyses. These tutorials are on the general use of the software, which will prepare you to then use more of the specific climatic facilities when we meet at the workshop.

You can either download PDF versions of the tutorials or view them online.
