Exploratory Data Analysis for Glacier Tracking
Statistical graphics are helpful tools in the visual representation of complex data. Using the R programming language, I demonstrate the use of various graphical tools such as histograms and scatterplots for illustrating the relationship between variables of interest. Examples of data visualizations are constructed from precipitation and temperature data obtained in the High Mountain Asia region where climate change related impacts in glacier melt patterns are negatively impacting local populations.
