Keywords: regression, permutation tests.
These data were collected in a cloud-seeding experiment in Tasmania between mid-1964 and January 1971. The rainfalls are period rainfalls in inches.

The data was recovered from the Statlib datasets directory.
The analysis of Miller et al (1979) used regression techniques and permutation tests.
The rainfalls are definitely non-normal. It is interesting to estimate a transformation or distribution for the measurements.
