Box Plots

BOXPLOT. This timeseries boxplot shows the ordered distribution of data for each month of the measurement record. This boxplot is a graphical depiction of a quartile which divides a sorted data set into four equal parts the lower quartile (lower edge of box), the median (circle with red dot), the upper quartile (upper edge of box). Also displayed is the inter-quartile range or IRQ (lines extending from box) and the IRQ outliers (astericks) for each month. No box is plotted if fewer than 50% (or two weeks) of measurements were taken for the given month.
