    STP 1283 gives you the opportunity to review several practical exercises conducted by authorities in this discipline. The 300-page volume opens with a four-part introduction to geostatistics:

    Geostatistics for Environmental and Geotechnical Applications: A Technology Transferred examines the practicality of geostatistical methods and concludes with a case study that thoroughly executes the geostatistical approach.

    Describing Spatial Variability Using Geostatistical Analysis discusses the interpretation and modeling of experimental measures of spatial variability and demonstrates with examples based on a hypothetical data set consisting of lead and arsenic measurements collected from a contaminated soil site.

    Geostatistical Estimation: Kriging discusses ordinary kriging (including a case study of the kriging of lead data); block kriging;alternative forms of kriging, and sources for more information.

    Modeling Spatial Variability Using Geostatistical Simulation describes the application of simulation to site investigation problems, and shows how simulated fields can be used to answer questions concerning alternative site remediation strategies.

    14 peer-reviewed papers follow in sections on Environmental Applications and Geotechnical and Earth Sciences Applications.
