What did you do?

I took my undergrad limnology class on a field trip to sample & characterize a local storm water retention pond in Brandon MB. Both weather and climate can provide important context when interpreting results. I used Steffi’s weathercan package to get Environment and Climate Change Canada weather & climate data for Brandon MB. I plotted up this data a few different ways and as a class we discussed how to best present this data.
