Geostatistics for Water Management and Environmental Sciences

Date: 24 September 2018 - 28 September 2018
Location: Delft

A 5-day course on geostatistics, topics include modelling spatiotemporal phenomena and simulation techniques combined with estimations of uncertainty.

Spatial statistics is used in mapping of spatial observations like from monitoring stations for hydrological or water resources data, assessing spatial data quality, relating the accuracy of spatial data to their intended use, sampling design optimization, modelling dependency structures, and drawing valid inference from a limited set of spatial data in agriculture, hydrology, hydrogeology, soil science, ecology etc.

Course FrequencyYearly
Target groupHydrologists, geoscientists, ecologists, MSc/PhD students with an interest in spatiotemporal data analysis.
PrerequisitesPreferable knowledge of basic statistics, matrix algebra
Intended credits2 ECTS
Course organisationUNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education
