I work with environmental data and want to determine correlations between variables that either have no "dependent/independent" relationship or the relationship is unknown. Therefore I prefer to use orthogonal distance regression (orthogonal linear regression, perpendicular sum of squares, etc.). I am trying to get set up to do this in R, but the various terminologies are making it challenging for me to determine whether this capability exists in the base packages (it doesn't look like it to me) or which other package I should download to do this. Searching the R website for any of the three terminologies above has not given me any obvious solutions. I would appreciate any assistance from folks with experience doing this type of regression. Thanks in advance!
