In this introductory text the authors demonstrate how simple statistical methods can be used to analyze earth science data. In clear language, they explain how various forms of the estimation method called kriging can be employed for specific problems. The book highlights an instructive case study of a simulated deposit. This model helps students develop an understanding of how statistical tools work in real situations, and serves as a tutorial guide to help the reader through what may be their first independent geostatistical study. Though the authors have avoided mathematical formalism, the presentation is not simplistic and readers should be familiar with basic calculus and be able to find the minimum of a function by using the first derivative.
