About these proceedings


Once applied only to problems of mining-reserves assessment or petroleum-reservoir characterization, geostatistics is now being used in an increasingly large number of disciplines in environmental sciences. On the one hand, it enables the analysis and handling, in a rigorous probabilistic framework of the issues of spatial and temporal interpolation of continuous or categorical environmental variables. On the other hand, the methodology is also used to design and optimize sampling campaigns. "Geostatistics for Environmental Applications" contains forty selected contributions covering the latest progress in a broad spectrum of fields including air quality, climatology, ecology, groundwater hydrology, surface hydrology, oceanography, soil contamination, epidemiology and health, natural hazards, and remote sensing.

From the reviews:

"‘Geostatistics for Environmental Applications’ collects the proceedings of the Fifth European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications … . In summary, this book is recommended to geostatistiscal practitioners in various environmental applications. It covers areas as diverse as ecology, air and health, groundwater, soil contamination, remote sensing, and environment." (Yuhong Liu, Computers & Geosciences, Vol. 33, 2007)
