Practical Environmental Statistics and Data Analysis

Jan 12 2021 Read 279 Times

By collecting, organising, analysing and interpreting statistics we gain a vital understanding of the world around us. Most environmental problems involve a large degree of uncertainty, and one way to improve understanding of the issues affecting the global environment is the use of statistics. Practical Environmental Statistics and Data Analysis describes the application of statistical methods in different environmental fields, with an emphasis on how to solve real-world problems in complex systems.

This book provides a perspective on how environmental professionals are practicing statistics in areas such as environmental forensics, ecological populations, environmental policy-making, groundwater monitoring networks and water quality monitoring. A section containing figures in full colour illustrates the topics discussed. The pitfalls of common statistical methods are also included to assist practitioners.

With chapters contributed by international experts with backgrounds in academia, industry and government agencies, this book is required reading for environmental decision-makers, planners and regulators, as well as academics and professionals in environmental science, engineering and mathematics.
