Date of Publication:
1 December 1997
This book provides an advanced-level introduction to geostatistics and geostatistical methodology. The discussion includes tools for description, quantitative modeling of spatial continuity, spatial prediction, and assessment of local uncertainty and stochastic simulation. It also details the theoretical background underlying most GSLIB programs.
