Geostatistics for Environmental and Geotechnical Applications: A Technology Transferred


Although successfully applied during the past few decades for predicting the spatial occurrences of properties that are cloaked from direct observation, geostatistical methods remain somewhat of a mystery to practitioners in the environmental and geotechnical fields. The techniques are powerful analytical tools that integrate numerical and statistical methods with scientific intuition and professional judgment to resolve conflicts between conceptual interpretation and direct measurement. This paper examines the practicality of these techniques within the entitles field of study and concludes by introducing a practical case study in which the geostatistical approach is thoroughly executed.
