Practical Geostatistics 2000
is the sequel to Dr Isobel Clark's seminal work "
Geostatistics 1979", the first textbook of its kind, and still in demand today.
The newer book and its companion volumes are co-authored by Isobel
Clark and Bill Harper.
The Practical Geostatistics 2000 (PG2000) series currently includes three volumes:
PG2000: the main textbook. 12 chapters taking a
beginner from no statistical knowledge to kriging and a wee way beyond.
PG2000: Answers to the exercises. Almost as many pages as the main textbook, this book contains worked answers to each of the exercises suggested in PG2000. There is a bonus chapter with a full worked example for the estimation of an average value over an area. The teaching software has been used to provide many of the answers, but most can be worked with calculators, spreadsheets or any other software you have to hand. The major datasets are provided as flat text files on the datasets page.
PG2000: Case Studies. On suggestion from colleagues, notably Pierre Mousset-Jones at Mackay School of Mines, we have produced a further “Answers” volume in a different format. In this book, each chapter takes one data set and works through it in intense and sometimes tedious detail. Each data set has its own quirks so that interesting twists occur in most of the chapters. Three data sets not included in previous volumes comprise chapters in this one: Brooms Barn soil data supplied by Dick Webster; development sampling from a historic precious metal mine in Nevada and a porphyry molybdenum deposit in BC Canada provided by Pierre Mousset-Jones.
Next planned is PG2000: Volume 2 discussing more complicated stuff like simulation, co-kriging, external drift and such like.
