  • About this book

ENVIRONMENTALSTATS for S-PLUS, a new add-on module to S-PLUS, is the first comprehensive software package for environmental scientists, engineers, and regulators. ENVIRONMENTALSTATS for S-PLUS provides a set of powerful yet simple-to-use functions for performing graphical and statistical analyses of environmental data, including parameter and quantile estimation, methods for dealing with non-detects, power and sample size calculations, prediction and tolerance intervals, and probabilistic risk assessment. ENVIRONMENTALSTATS for S-PLUS includes an extensive hyptertext help system that explains methods from the environmental literature and regulatory guidance documents, along with a glossary of commonly used statistical and environmental terms. This users manual provides the documentation for Versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the ENVIRONMENTALSTATS for S-PLUS module. Version 1.0 works under S-PLUS 3.3/3.4 and Version 1.1 works under S-PLUS 4.0.
