Averaging Total Alkalinity

I have water chemistry data!

Sam ran samples from the beginning, middle, and end of my Manchester adult pH exposure on the titrator. He then calculated total alkalinity for these samples. I saved the information in this .csv file. More information is available in his notebook post.

For my paper, Steven suggested I make a table with average total alkalinity values for each sampling period for both control and experimental treatments. I used this R script to average total alkalinity values and calculate standard errors, and exported the data in this .csv file. It’s something I could have just done in Excel, but this way I have functional for loops in case I need to run more water samples and perform these calculations on a larger dataset.
