DescriptionKnowledge of the basic geostatistical concepts, difference between Kriging and simulation, advantages and disadvantages of the discussed methods, application of Kriging and simulation.
Geostatistical procedures for the interpolation of measured values, assessment of model parameters and planning of Measuring networks are dealt with.
  • Introduction
  • Statistical hypotheses:
    Basic concepts; Regionalized variables; Second order stationarity; Intrinsic hypothesis; Comparison of the two hypotheses; Selection of the regionalized variable
  • The variogram:
    The experimental variogram; The theoretical variogram; Variogram models; Variogram fitting; Isotropy — anisotropy
  • Ordinary Kriging:
    Point kriging; Block kriging; Properties of ordinary kriging; Kriging as an interpolator; Kriging and the variogram; Practice of kriging; Selection of the neighbourhood; Kriging with a “false” variogram; Cross validation; Kriging with uncertain data; Simple Kriging
