# Geostatistics Introduction

A reader-friendly introduction to geostatistics for students and researchers struggling with statistics. Using simple, clear explanations for introductory and advanced material, it demystifies complex concepts and makes formulas and statistical tests easy to apply. Beginning with a critical evaluation of experimental and sampling design, the book moves on to explain essential concepts of probability, statistical significance and type 1 and type 2 error. An accessible graphical explanation of analysis of variance (ANOVA) leads onto advanced ANOVA designs, correlation and regression, and non-parametric tests including chi-square. Finally, it introduces the essentials of multivariate techniques, multi-dimensional scaling and cluster analysis, analysis of sequences and concepts of spatial analysis. Illustrated with wide-ranging examples from topics across the Earth and environmental sciences, Geostatistics Explained can be used for undergraduate courses or for self-study and reference. Worked examples at the end of each chapter reinforce a clear understanding of the statistical tests and their applications.

• End-of-chapter worked examples allow the reader to manipulate data and see how tests and formulas actually work
• Diagnostic tables for choosing the appropriate statistical test provide an excellent resource for the non-specialist
• Explanations encourage and give the reader the confidence to use statistical tests and interpret the results effectively even if they have an aversion to mathematics

### Reviews & endorsements

"The book is easy to read, provides many examples, figures, graphs and illustrations as well as boxes providing complementary information. I can highly recommend this book based on my own experience with it, and can also imagine it being very useful for those teaching statistical methods to geoscientists." - Nina Kirchner, Mathematics Education Database

"The book's accessible presentation style and numerous interesting, illustrative examples from topics across the earth sciences provide students and researchers with a good foundation and a clear understanding of the fundamentals of statistics. Useful index ... Highly recommended." CHOICE

What geographical areas are best suited for a solar dish farm?
The southwest region of the United States is ideally suited for this. In fact, a solar farm 100 miles by 100 miles could satisfy 100% of the Americaâs annual electrical needs. Solar technology primarily addresses the peak power demands facing utility companies in the Southwest U.S. and other solar-rich areas.

### Depends

by tlbrink

The cost of living and job markets are better than the national average, but the best job strategy is not to go for averages, but look at your specific skills and experiences, figure out which careers that relates to, and then go to that geographical area:
technology - Silicon Valley
finance - New York
There are other factors to consider. How important are mountains? the ocean? good weather? I have met many midwesterners in Acapulco during the winter, and none ever told me
"I got to get back to Omaha. I just miss those snow covered plains."

### 4,000 Year Old Greenlander

by BurpBoohickie

WASHINGTON (Reuters) â Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
"This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature
