R Dataset / Package DAAG / hotspots
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the hotspots data set which pertains to Hawaian island chain hotspot Potassium-Argon ages. The hotspots data set is found in the DAAG R package. Try to load the hotspots data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("hotspots"). This may load the data into a variable called hotspots. If R says the hotspots data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("DAAG") and then attempt to reload the data with library("DAAG") followed by data("hotspots"). 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 hotspots 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 hotspots R data set. The size of this file is about 1,285 bytes.
Hawaian island chain hotspot Potassium-Argon ages
K-Ar Ages (millions of years) and distances (km) from Kilauea along the trend of the chain of Hawaian volcanic islands and other seamounts that are believed to have been created by a moving "hot spot". The age of Kilauea is given as 0-0.4 Ma.
A data frame with 36 observations on the following 6 variables.
