An introduction to geostatistics stressing the multivariate aspects for scientists, engineers and statisticians. The book presents a brief review of statistical concepts, a detailed introduction to linear geostatistics, and an account of three basic methods of multivariate analysis. Applications from very different areas of science, as well as exercises with solutions, are provided to help convey the general ideas. In this second edition, the chapters regarding normal kriging and cokriging have been restructured and the section on non-stationary geostatistics has been entirely rewritten.
Introducing geostatistics from a multivariate perspective is the main aim of this book. The idea took root while teaching geostatistics at the Centre de Geostatis tique (Ecole des Mines de Paris) over the past ten years in the two postgraduate programs DEA and CFSG. A first script of lecture notes in French originated from this activity. A specialized course on Multivariate and Exploratory Geostatistics held in September 1993 in Paris (organized in collaboration with the Department of Statistics of Trinity College Dublin) was the occasion to test some of the mate rial on a pluridisciplinary audience. Another important opportunity arose last year when giving a lecture on Spatial Statistics during the summer term at the Department of Statistics of the University of Washington at Seattle, where part of this manuscript was distributed in an early version. Short accounts were also given during COMETT and TEMPUS courses on geostatistics for environment al studies in Fontainebleau, Freiberg, Rome and Prague, which were sponsored by the European Community. I wish to thank the participants of these various courses for their stimulating questions and comments. Among the organizers of these courses, I particularly want to acknowledge the support received from Georges Matheron, Pierre Chau vet, Margaret Armstrong, John Haslett and Paul Sampson. Michel Grzebyk has made valuable comments on Chapters 26 and 27, which partly summarize some of his contributions to the field.
This fully revised third edition introduces geostatistics by emphasising the multivariate aspects for scientists, engineers and statisticians. Geostatistics offers a variety of models, methods and techniques for the analysis, estimation and display of multivariate data distributed in space or time. The text contains a brief review of statistical concepts, a detailed introduction to linear geostatistics, and an account of 3 basic methods of multivariate analysis. Applications from different areas of science, as well as exercises with solutions, are provided to help convey the general ideas. The introductory chapter has been divided into two separate sections for clarity. The final section deals with non-stationary geostatistics.

Geostatistics and Petroleum Geology
This is an extensive revision of a book that I wrote over ten years ago. My purpose then has remained unchanged: to introduce the concepts and methods of spatial statistics to geologists and engineers working with oil and gas data. I believe I have accomplished more than that; just as I learned the basics of variography and kriging from books for mining engineers, this book could be used by scientists from many fields to learn the basics of the subject. I have tried to adopt an introductory and practical approach to the subject, knowing that books that detail the theory are available. What I say and write comes from my own experience. As a geologist working in the public sector, I have had the privilege of using geostatistics in funded research, in answering service requests from industry, and in short courses. I have taught geostatistics in the university classroom, and advised graduate students in theses and dissertations. I have attempted to anticipate the needs and questions of the enquiring scientist because I was there myself, and know the kind of questions and concerns I had at the time I was trying to learn the subject.

geoENV VI Geostatistics for Environmental Applications
This volume contains 40 selected full-text contributions from the Sixth European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications, geoENV IV, held in Rhodes, Greece, October 25-26, 2006. The objective of the editors was to compile a set of papers from which the reader could perceive how geostatistics is applied within the environmental sciences. A few selected theoretical contributions are also included.
Geostatistics Tr ia 92
The contributions in this book were presented at the Fourth International Geostatistics Congress held in Tróia, Portugal, in September 1992. They provide a comprehensive account of the current state of the art of geostatistics, including recent theoretical developments and new applications. In particular, readers will find descriptions and applications of the more recent methods of stochastic simulation together with data integration techniques applied to the modelling of hydrocabon reservoirs. In other fields there are stationary and non-stationary geostatistical applications to geology, climatology, pollution control, soil science, hydrology and human sciences. The papers also provide an insight into new trends in geostatistics particularly the increasing interaction with many other scientific disciplines. This book is a significant reference work for practitioners of geostatistics both in academia and industry.
Hierarchical Modeling and Analysis for Spatial Data Second Edition
Keep Up to Date with the Evolving Landscape of Space and Space-Time Data Analysis and Modeling Since the publication of the first edition, the statistical landscape has substantially changed for analyzing space and space-time data. More than twice the size of its predecessor, Hierarchical Modeling and Analysis for Spatial Data, Second Edition reflects the major growth in spatial statistics as both a research area and an area of application. New to the Second Edition New chapter on spatial point patterns developed primarily from a modeling perspective New chapter on big data that shows how the predictive process handles reasonably large datasets New chapter on spatial and spatiotemporal gradient modeling that incorporates recent developments in spatial boundary analysis and wombling New chapter on the theoretical aspects of geostatistical (point-referenced) modeling Greatly expanded chapters on methods for multivariate and spatiotemporal modeling New special topics sections on data fusion/assimilation and spatial analysis for data on extremes Double the number of exercises Many more color figures integrated throughout the text Updated computational aspects, including the latest version of WinBUGS, the new flexible spBayes software, and assorted R packages The Only Comprehensive Treatment of the Theory, Methods, and Software This second edition continues to provide a complete treatment of the theory, methods, and application of hierarchical modeling for spatial and spatiotemporal data. It tackles current challenges in handling this type of data, with increased emphasis on observational data, big data, and the upsurge of associated software tools. The authors also explore important application domains, including environmental science, forestry, public health, and real estate.
Multiple point Geostatistics
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to multiple-point geostatistics, where spatial continuity is described using training images. Multiple-point geostatistics aims at bridging the gap between physical modelling/realism and spatio-temporal stochastic modelling. The book provides an overview of this new field in three parts. Part I presents a conceptual comparison between traditional random function theory and stochastic modelling based on training images, where random function theory is not always used. Part II covers in detail various algorithms and methodologies starting from basic building blocks in statistical science and computer science. Concepts such as non-stationary and multi-variate modeling, consistency between data and model, the construction of training images and inverse modelling are treated. Part III covers three example application areas, namely, reservoir modelling, mineral resources modelling and climate model downscaling. This book will be an invaluable reference for students, researchers and practitioners of all areas of the Earth Sciences where forecasting based on spatio-temporal data is performed.
