|About the Book|
Unlike most other sciences, geology does not have a strong tradition of numerical analysis. It is, however, increasingly common for primary geological information to be quantitative rather than descriptive, and analysis of numerical data is now a skill of immense value to any earth scientist. The authors of this book have set out to provide students at undergraduate and graduate level with a thorough grounding in the statistical techniques required in the earth sciences. All the modern statistical methods employed by geologists and geophysicists are covered, with clear worked examples using the type of data the reader is likely to encounter.
