Is there evidence of global warming in the records of ice cover on lakes? If Earth is getting warmer, lakes that freeze over in the winter should be covered with ice for shorter periods of time as Earth gradually warms. R. Bohanan examined records of ice duration for Lake Mendota at Madison, WI, in the paper "Changes in Lake Ice: Ecosystem Response to Global Change" (Teaching Issues and Experiments in Ecology, Vol. 3). The data are presented on the WeissStats CD and should be analyzed with the technology of your choice. Forecast the ice duration in the years 2006 and 2007.
a. Obtain a scatterplot for the data.
b. Find and interpret the regression equation.
c. Make the specified forecasts.
