This reader-friendly introduction to geostatistics provides a lifeline for students and researchers across the Earth and environmental sciences who until now have struggled with statistics. Using simple and clear explanations for both introductory and advanced material, it demystifies complex concepts and makes formulas and statistical tests easy to understand and apply.The book begins with a discussion and critical evaluation of experimental and sampling design before moving on to explain essential concepts of probability, statistical significance and Type 1 and Type 2 error. Tests for one and two samples are presented, followed by an accessible graphical explanation of analysis of variance (ANOVA). More advanced ANOVA designs, correlation and regression, and non-parametric tests including chi-square, are then considered. Finally, it introduces the essentials of multivariate techniques such as principal components analysis, multidimensional scaling and cluster analysis, analysis of sequences (especially autocorrelation and simple regression models) and concepts of spatial analysis, including the semivariogram and its application in Kriging.
Illustrated with wide-ranging and interesting examples from topics across the Earth and environmental sciences, Geostatistics Explained provides a solid grounding in the basic methods, as well as serving as a bridge to more specialized and advanced analytical techniques. It can be used for an undergraduate course or for self-study and reference. Worked examples at the end of each chapter help reinforce a clear understanding of the statistical tests and their applications. <...>
