Trends

Tim Gerrodette TRENDS is a program designed to carry out a power analysis of linear regression in the context of monitoring populations in wildlife studies.

WinCruz-(ETP)

WinCruz- (Antarctic)

-for PC only-

Robert Holland A program to gather marine mammal sighting data during ship transects. Data can be collected during on/off effort transects. There are two main windows: Graph and Data.

Robert Holland WinDACS = Windows Data Acquisition System. A program to collect oceanographic data real-time during ship transects. It can gather seawater temperature/conductivity/salinity, GPS location, and Analog-to-Digital (A/D) chlorophyll data from a Turner Fluorometer. A graph shows the current cruise track of the ship as well as a temperature/salinity profile. Please contact the author for information on obtaining this program. This program will only run on Windows 95/98/ME
