Short course

The objective of the short course (workshop) on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications is to present an intuitive introduction to geostatistics as applied to problems encountered in environmental studies. The basic concepts will be illustrated through a real case study using interactive software. The workshop will be split between lecture sessions and interactive workshop sessions. Each participant will receive at set of lecture notes.

Who should attend

This workshop is aimed at professionals involved in the analysis of spatial data sets for environmental studies.
