Kendall's tau Correlation Test
US Geological Survey, 2005
Data set: Example MKL4a - Mann-Kendall with LOWESS, input type 4
Flow-adjusted concentrations were calculated as
residuals from a LOWESS smooth line (f = 0.50)
for concentration vs. streamflow
The tau correlation coefficient is -0.057
S = -179.
z = -0.740
p = 0.4596
The relation may be described by the equation:
Residual = 3660.0 + -1.852 * X
