Schuenemeyer, John

Statistics for Earth and Environmental Scientists

€ 161.95

The goal of this book is to present skills and knowledge of important statistical concepts through data analytic tools and then apply them to real world problems in the environmental sciences. Each chapter concludes with exercises designed to elicit understanding of the processes of data analysis, model building, and statistical inference.
