Stochastic Modeling and Geostatistics

Principles, Methods, and Case Studies


This book is dedicated in part to understanding qualitative and deterministic geologic models in terms of statistics. The book is precisely concerned with the fact that given the same set of data, different geologists will generate different results, all of which may be valid interpretations. It is the premise of the authors that understanding the interpretive variations is far more important than identifying any one particular model as truth.
