wqbc R package helps clean and process water quality data and calculates water quality thresholds for British Columbia. Previously this package also calculated the CCME Water Quality Index but that functionality has been moved to its own package: wqindex.
This package was written for the B.C. Ministry of Environment by Poisson Consulting. Ministry of Environment staff maintain the package.
For information on use, please see the vignette. In your R session, you can type
vignette("wqbc") to see the vignette. Please note that this vignette is currently out of date as it includes information on calculating the Water Quality Index (which has been moved to its own package wqindex).
To install the latest version of wqbc:
# install the devtools package if it's not already installed # install.packages("devtools") library(devtools) install_github("bcgov/wqbc") library(wqbc)
This package is under development. The user is responsible for checking all variables and limits that they use.
