This book contains selected contributions from the geoENV96 - First European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications, held in Lisbon in November 1996.
This is the first of a geoENV series of biennial planned books. The series is intended to show the state of the art of geostatistics in environmental applications with new cases, results and relevant discussions from leading researchers and practitioners around the world.
New and important theoretical and practical developments of geostatistics in the environmental field were compiled from three main areas:

• Hydrology, Groundwater and Groundwater Contamination
• Soil Contamination and Site Remediation
• Air Pollution, Ecology and Other Applications

The book presents a set of geostatistical tools and approaches used to successfully resolve a variety of specific problems in environment modelling, especially those resulting from the typical scarcity of spatial sampling, the time component of very dynamic systems, the modelling of various systems of contaminants, the uncertainty assessment of health cost functions, etc.
Prominent topics concerning methodological tools and methods, shastic simulation techniques, models of integrating soft information (seismic and remote sensing images), inverse modelling of groundwater flow, neural network classification, change of support and up-scaling are also included in this book.
This publication will be of great interest and practical value to geostatisticians working both in universities and in industry.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book is a valuable text for advanced students and research scientists in very different fields as biology, soil science, hydrogeology, ecology.'
Libri Ricevuti
Presents 40 papers from the first of a series of biennial meetings. The articles are concerned with environmental issues approached by geostatistical methods from fields such as hydrogeology, biology, soil sciences, air pollution and ecology. Divided into sections on earth, water, and air, the volume includes discussions of: mapping spatial and temporal variation of groundwater quality in the Netherlands, numerical aspects of the universal kriging method for hydrological applications, mapping cadmium concentration and the risk of exceeding a local sanitation threshold using indicator statistics, advanced spatial data analysis of Chernobyl fallout, and other subjects.
