Geostatistics with Applications in Earth Sciences

D.D. Sarma (Author)
Synopsis This book has been designed to serve as a text book for post graduate-students and research workers in earth sciences who require a background of and a feel for statistics and the theory of regionalised variables. Although the word geostatistics is used throughout Europe signalling the theory of regionalised variables as propounded by geoscientists at the Centre de Geostatistique, France, still it was considered necessary to include in this book some important classical statistical methods which are essential for modelling the processes concerning earth resource systems for optimum appraisal. First four chapters deal with the classical statistical methods including a discussion on Box-Jenkins models of time series analysis and next four deal with a discussion on the theory of regionalised variables and restricted upto Kriging (stationary case). Last chapter deals exclusively with the software developed for some of the problems. Practical application of these methods in earth sciences is explained at every stage. In all, it is hoped that this book would serve as a practical guide to geostatistics. The units of measurement used in the examples cited in the text are the real ones.

About the author

D.D. Sarma

Dr.D.D.Sarma earned his M.A (Economics with Statistics), M.Sc (Statistics) and Ph.D from Andhra University, India. He was with the National Geophysical Research Institute (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research), Hyderabad for nearly 35 years and worked extensively on stochastic and geostatistical modeling of earth resource systems – especially in modeling various mineralization processes. As a visiting scientist at the Royal School of Mines, Imperial College of Science and Technology and the University of Leeds, Leeds (U.K) in 1974, he worked with Dr. (Mrs) Isobel Clark and Prof. A.G.Royle who have made significant contributions in geostatistics. Dr.Sarma was a Research Associate at the University of Georgia (1978) and worked with the eminent professor, Dr.Geoge Koch, Jr., on Uranium Resource Evaluation problems. As a visiting scientist at the Centre de geostatistique , France, (987), he was associated with Prof. G. Matheron, Dr. (Mrs) Marget Armstrong and other pioneers in the field of geostatistics. He has toured extensively and delivered lectures on stochastic and geostatistical modeling at various institutions both in India and abroad. Dr.Sarma has been the Regional Representative for Asia on the International Geostatistics Association (France). Dr. Sarma is a Fellow of Computer Society of India, Andhra Pradesh Akademi of Sciences, Geological Society of India and the Indian Geophysical Union. Dr. Sarma is presently associated with Guru Nanak Engineering College, Hyderabad as Professor & Head, Department of Computer Applications.
