Statistics for the Environment: Water Related Issues / Edition 1by Vic Barnett
Pub. Date: 11/03/1994
Presents integrated and comprehensive coverage of the specific theme of statistical models and methods in relation to environmental problems concerning water. The contributions are thematically structured into four sections: Rainfall and Climate; Sea Levels and Wave Energy; Water Quality, Supply and Management; Hydrological Modelling. The dual emphasis, on soundly constructed statistical models and methods and their use in specific practical applications, makes this book an essential resource for scientists and statisticians involved in water related areas of environmental monitoring, protection and conservation.
