BOD: Biochemical Oxygen Demand

Description

The BOD data frame has 6 rows and 2 columns giving the biochemical oxygen demand versus time in an evaluation of water quality.

Usage

BOD

Arguments

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

Time

A numeric vector giving the time of the measurement (days).

demand

A numeric vector giving the biochemical oxygen demand (mg/l).

Examples

# NOT RUN {
require(stats)
# simplest form of fitting a first-order model to these data
fm1 <- nls(demand ~ A*(1-exp(-exp(lrc)*Time)), data = BOD,
   start = c(A = 20, lrc = log(.35)))
coef(fm1)
fm1
# using the plinear algorithm
fm2 <- nls(demand ~ (1-exp(-exp(lrc)*Time)), data = BOD,
   start = c(lrc = log(.35)), algorithm = "plinear", trace = TRUE)
# using a self-starting model
fm3 <- nls(demand ~ SSasympOrig(Time, A, lrc), data = BOD)
summary(fm3)
# }
