About this book

Simulation is the fastest developing branch in geostatistics, and simulating the facies inside reservoirs and orebodies is the most exciting part of this. Several methods have been developed to do this (sequential indicator simulations, Boolean methods, Markov chains and plurigaussian simulations). Plurigaussian Simulations in Geosciences focuses on the last type of simulation. It presents the theory required to understand the method, along with the practical examples of applications in mining and and the oil industry as well as tutorial examples. An accompanying CD-ROM featuring demonstration software and color images complement the written text.

"This volume was produced as an attempt to provide a single, comprehensive guide to the theory and practical applications of truncated and pluriGaussian simulations, and is derived from a set of short course notes developed for pluriGaussian simulation courses run by the Centre de Geostatistique in Fontainebleau, France. [...] The book is strongly recommended for geostatistics practitioners and simulation novices alike, and is a timely and welcome addition to a rapidly developing field."
– Stella Searston, The Australian Geologist, Issue 129, 2003
