1 Introduction

This package contains functions to assist in the processing and exploration of data from monitoring programs for aquatic ecosystems. The name wq stands for water quality. Although our own interest is in aquatic ecology, almost all of the functions should be useful for time series analysis regardless of the subject matter. The package is intended for programs that sample approximately monthly at discrete stations, a feature of many legacy data sets.
