Summary
  • "Statistical Applications for Environmental Analysis and Risk Assessment stresses and explains the importance of a basic knowledge of statistics and statistical analysis in the environmental sciences. Emphasizing applications in such areas as hydrology, hydrogeology, contaminant hydrogeology, and water and air quality, this general-purpose environmental statistics book for students and practitioners does not assume prior familiarity with the subject. The text provides a carefully researched, readable account of statistical applications that encourages current and future environmental scientists to be more comfortable with statistics and to perform basic statistical analyses with confidence"--
