This project was created to act as a final project submission for the EAPS591 course Cybertraining for FAIR Data Science offered by Purdue University for the Fall 2019-2020 semester. The aim of this project is to create a workflow for analysis and modeling experiments to produce Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) science in hydrological, weather and climate studies.

This project will evaluate the performance of several models so an informed decision can be made on which type of model should be used to further study the mean sea level data. Data has been obtained from the NOAA website and it has been processed to create models using several statistical techniques such as linear, loess and the kNN method of Statistical Machine Learning.
