Plotting Data with R

This tutorial includes an R script (R-project website) for plotting data from the Folger Pinnacle and Folger Deep sites. The script can be run by cutting and pasting it command-by-command, or all at once, onto the command line of the R console. The first section of code inputs ocean data from Ocean Networks Canada's NEPTUNE platforms at the Folger Pinnacle (23 m depth) and Folger Deep (94 m depth) sites. The data are daily averages for ocean salinity and temperature for December 2012. The second section of code produces a scatter plot with the data.
