Stratigraphic diagrams with tidypaleo & ggplot2

by on August 14, 2018

This post covers creating stratigraphic diagrams using ggplot2, highlighting the helpers contained within the tidypaleo package, which I’ve been using for the past few months to create diagrams. I chose the ggplot2 framework because it is quite flexible and can be used to create almost any time-stratigraphic diagram except ones that involve multiple axes (we […]

Using the tidyverse to wrangle core data

by on August 24, 2017

The paleolimnological data I work with most days is voluminous and difficult to wrangle. There are a lot of cores, a lot of variables, and a lot of parameters thanks to the multi-element analysis of the X-Ray Fluorescence spectrometer we’ve used recently on our sediment samples. However, since the advent of the tidyverse, this job […]

It’s been a nearly 9-month saga, but I’m pleased to announce that my first ever peer-reviewed paper has been published in the Journal of Paleolimnology as of October 2016. The paper (“A geochemical perspective on the impact of development at Alta Lake, British Columbia, Canada“) is a result of my M.Sc. work on Alta Lake […]
