Old Faithful Geyser Data

A version of the eruptions data from the ‘Old Faithful’ geyser in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. This version comes from Azzalini and Bowman (1990) and is of continuous measurement from August 1 to August 15, 1985.

Some nocturnal duration measurements were coded as 2, 3 or 4 minutes, having originally been described as ‘short’, ‘medium’ or ‘long’.
