About this book

Most environmental problems involve a large degree of uncertainty, and one way to improve understanding of the issues affecting the global environment is the use of statistics. This book describes the application of statistical methods in different environmental fields, with an emphasis on how to solve real-world problems in complex systems. The book provides a perspective on how environmental professionals are practicing statistics in areas such as environmental forensics, ecological populations, environmental policy-making, groundwater monitoring networks, transport in environmental systems, and water quality monitoring. A section containing figures in full colour illustrates the topics discussed. The pitfalls of common statistical methods are also included to assist practitioners. With chapters contributed by international experts with backgrounds in academia, industry and government agencies, this book is required reading for environmental decision-makers, planners and regulators, as well as academics and professionals in environmental science, engineering and mathematics.
