R Dataset / Package boot / salinity
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the salinity data set which pertains to Water Salinity and River Discharge. The salinity data set is found in the boot R package. Try to load the salinity data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("salinity"). This may load the data into a variable called salinity. If R says the salinity data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("boot") and then attempt to reload the data with library("boot") followed by data("salinity"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing salinity at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the salinity R data set. The size of this file is about 506 bytes.
