DAIME: a new R package to correct the effects of changing depositional rates

Niklas Hohmann, a student from our Master program, published a new statistical tool that allow to correct the effects of changing deposition rates on geological data. These deposition rates determine how much time it takes to form rocks of a given thickness, and can therefore alter our interpretation of paleobiological rates when examining this rock. The statistical tool is available for R and can be downloaded at https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=DAIME
