Second N-STEPS Webcast Scheduled for July 11

After a successful first Webcast session on developing criteria for nitrogen and phosphorus (known collectively as "nutrients"), the Office of Science & Technology is sponsoring another Webcast on July 11 at 3pm EDT.

Statistical analysis can appear mysterious and be mind numbing, but it is crucial for developing nutrient criteria. The N-STEPS Webcast will present some of the most relevant statistical tools and how non-statisticians can effectively use them. This introduction to regression and trend analysis techniques will also reveal the data needed for each technique, pros and cons, and examples.
