Geostatistics Programs

Variogram Map

GS+ is a comprehensive geostatistics software program that is fast, efficient, and easy to use. GS+ provides all geostatistics components, from semivariance analysis through kriging and mapping, in a single integrated software program widely praised for its flexibility and friendly interface. Many users are surprised that geostatistical analysis can be so easy and intuitive.

What is geostatistics? Geostatistics is a class of statistical techniques developed to analyze and predict values of a variable distributed in space or time. It begins with a type of autocorrelation analysis called variography or semivariance analysis, in which the degree of self-similarity is displayed as a variogram. The variogram model is used to predict unsampled locations by kriging or conditional simulation, which produces estimates of the variable across the entire spatial or temporal domain.

GS+ software was first introduced in 1988. Geostatistics is not an add-on feature of GS+ - it is at the heart of the software. Many of our users have access to other geostatistics tools within their favorite GIS or mapping programs but come to GS+ for their serious geostatistical analyses, especially for exploring geostatistical relationships within data sets. Because GS+ output is compatible with industry standards, GS+ can be used directly with many of these other programs. Or it can be used standalone - GS+ has its own data worksheet (which also accepts MicroSoft® Excel®, Access®, and other types of data files) and produces its own maps for those users who are not working with other mapping programs.

Anything new about stirling engines in Cal?

Looking for an update. Everything I find from google news is almost a year old. This is from the stirling engine deal with Southern Edison to build a 500MW plant outside of LA.
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 America’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.

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) – 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

Which are the good (bio-)statistics programs in the States that don't require a high GRE verbal score?

If you want to get into a good grauduate school, you should try to maximize your GRE scores. Some schools place less emphasis on them than others but if you are borderline for admission, a higher GRE will get you in.
