Geostatistics is essential for environmental scientists. Weatherand climate vary from place to place, soil varies at every scale atwhich it is examined, and even man-made attributes – such asthe distribution of pollution – vary. The techniques used ingeostatistics are ideally suited to the needs of environmentalscientists, who use them to make the best of sparse data forprediction, and top plan future surveys when resources are limited.

Geostatistical technology has advanced much in the last fewyears and many of these developments are being incorporated intothe practitioner’s repertoire. This second edition describesthese techniques for environmental scientists. Topics such asstochastic simulation, sampling, data screening, spatialcovariances, the variogram and its modeling, and spatial predictionby kriging are described in rich detail. At each stage theunderlying theory is fully explained, and the rationale behind thechoices given, allowing the reader to appreciate the assumptionsand constraints involved.

From the Back Cover:

There are many factors that environmental scientists shouldconsider in their research. Weather and climate vary widely betweenlocations, soil varies at every spatial scale at which it isexamined, and even man-made attributes, such as the distribution ofpollution, fluctuate significantly. To analyse the varied kinds ofdata and to predict at unvisited places from them, researchscientists need to be familiar with the techniques ofGeostatistics.

This revised and fully updated second edition ofGeostatistics for Environmental Scientists providescomprehensive coverage of the techniques involved in this vitalbranch of statistics. The book

  • introduces readers to the most up-to-date statisticaltechniques, including, sampling, data screening, spatialcovariances, the variogram and its modelling;
  • includes a new chapter on stochastic simulation, and covers thelatest methods, such as residual maximum likelihood and factorialkriging analysis;
  • adopts a practical approach throughout, illustrating theapplications with worked examples and case studies;
  • provides step-by-step guidance for analysing environmentalsurvey data;
  • explains the underlying theory and rationale behind the choicesfaced by the researchers at each stage, allowing the reader toappreciate the assumptions and constraints involved.

The accessible style of Geostatistics for EnvironmentalScientists, Second Edition makes this text invaluable toadvanced undergraduate and graduate students of spatial variationand environmental research.
