The afternoon session will be an overview of the widgets of SWMPrats and selected time series topics. The SWMPrats website was created to assist the NERRS program with analysis and interpretation of SWMP data. Three widgets on the website allow users to summarize trends within and between sites using a point-and-click approach. Selected time series topics will include weighted regression for trend analysis, time series decomposition, and Seasonal Kendall tests.
