Statistics 400 Lab #9 Eruptions of Old Faithful A geyser is a hot spring that becomes unstable and erupts hot gases into the air. Perhaps the most famous of these is Wyoming's Old Faithful Geyser . Visitors to Yellowstone park most often visit Old Faithful to see it erupt. Consequently, it is of great interest to be able to predict the interval time of the next eruption. Consider a sample of 222 interval times between eruptions (Weisberg, 1985). The data are located in www.stat.lsa.umich.edu/~dbingham/Stat400/geyser.dat. The first few lines of the available data are: Day of Study Length of Last Eruption (Minutes) Interval Between Last Eruption and Next Eruption (Minutes) 1 4.4 78 1 3.9 74 1 4.0 68 1 4.0 76 . . . . . . . . . Earlier in the course, we looked at a variety of plots that help shed some light on the distribution of the intervals. Ultimately, the Park service employees would like to predict the interval between eruptions based on the length of the last eruption.
