About this book

Evolving from a popular short course developed by the author for environmental, state agency, and industrial professionals, this practical guide presents the basic statistical principles used in the scientific design of groundwater monitoring statistical programs. It allows readers to understand the nature of groundwater data, understand the decision-making problem as a statistical hypothesis-testing problem, appreciate the limitations of some statistical approaches, and recognize the challenges that remain in the development of groundwater monitoring strategies. Davis; Charles Consultant, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA,
