Part of: Critical Water Issues and Computer Applications


The theory of regionalized variables commonly known as geostatistics is now being applied throughout the community of engineering and sciences. Measurements taken at different locations, called spatial data, are analyzed for statistical properties, that allow powerful estimating techniques to be employed. Every worker within engineering and science should be aware of the techniques such as variograms, kriging, and error mapping.
