## R FOR HYDROLOGISTS: Correlation and Information Theory Measurements – Part 2: Exercises

R FOR HYDROLOGISTS CORRELATION AND INFORMATION THEORY MEASUREMENTS (Part 2) Proposed back in the 40’s by Shannon Information theory provide a framework for the analysis of randomness in time-series, and information gain when comparing statistical models of inference. Information theory is based on probability theory and statistics. It often concerns itself with measures of information […]
