C&ENVENG 4056 - Linear Geostatistics

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2015

This course provides a more rigorous and in-depth treatment of the subjects covered in Introduction to Geostatistics. Variograms - calculation, interpretation and modelling. Averaging effects - regularisation and its effects. Using the variogram to predict statistical characteristics of variables measured on different scales. The stationarity assumptions - strict stationarity, second-order stationarity and intrinsic stationarity. Kriging and kriging variances - the effects of changes in parameter values, screen effects, simple kriging, ordinary kriging. Applications of kriging to case studies and demonstration examples.
