This book contains selected contributions from the "geoENV98" - the Second European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Sciences, held in Valencia, Spain in November 1998. This second book of the geoENV series illustrates the developments on geostatistics as applied to the environmental sciences which have occurred during the past two years. It also presents practical applications which will be of interest to both researchers and practitioners. The book starts with three keynote papers on ecology, climatology and soil science, followed by forty-three contributions. The contents of the book are eminently practical. The objective of the editors was to compile a set of papers in which the reader could perceive how geostatistics is applied within the environmental sciences. A few selected theoretical contributions are also included. The papers are organized in the following seven main areas: air pollution; climatology; ecology; hydrology; soil science; theory; other applications. They present applications varying from particle matter analysis, noise exposure sampling, space-time modeling of ozone levels, downscaling of precipitation, kriging with categorical external drift, analysis of fish abundance, combining variograms and radio-telemetry in ecology, kriging radionuclide deposition, mapping of soil contamination, network design for soil monitoring, inverse modeling in hydrogeology, groundwater transport modeling, coastal evolution mapping to spatial modeling of cancer ratios. Audience: This publication will be of great interest and practical value to geostatisticians working both in academia and in industry.
