A list of useful things I come across and want to store or share with others.
- Reference manager Zotero. Fantastic, free (there’s a paid subscription if you want more online storage; I do this partly for the storage and partly because I want the software to continue to exist and improve, so $20 seems like a small price for that). Here’s some great tips to get you started in organizing your collection, too.
Useful Statistics Resources
- Helsel, D. R. and Hirsch, R. M. (2002) Statistical Methods in Water Resources, U.S. Geological Survey. A free publication by the USGS that is the most useful book for understanding statistics that I’ve come across. It certainly helps that all of the examples are in a context I can understand and are directly relevant to me, but on directing others outside of the water-related fields to it, they have also confirmed its fantastic usefulness and clarity. If you want a more fundamental understanding of basic statistical topics, also check out this.
Useful R posts and notes
- I’ve recently been running into memory issues while running some code with large data sets in R. This post for a simple function that tells you how much space you’re already using is great.
