2 An updated FRWSED version, soon to be completed, will add routines that 1) aid in debugging data input files, 2) permit more sophisticated grouping of data for comparison purposes, 3) make statistical comparisons (ANOVA) between calibration curves and output a graphical comparison of calibration functions, 4) add support for HPGL plotters, 5) Increase data input capacity of the program, and 6) compute and plot group-averaged values of cumulative sediment loss and outflow sediment concentration, as a function of irrigation duration.
