In Applied Geostatistics, the authors demonstrate how simple statistical methods can be used to analyze earth science data. They explain how various forms of the estimation method called kriging can be employed for specific problems. A case study of a simulated deposit is the focus of the book. This model helps the student develop an understanding of how statistical tools work, serving as a tutorial to guide the reader through his or her first independent geostatistical study. The text is aimed primarily at students of mining geology and engineering.
