Abstract

In environmental statistics, the investigator views his data as samples from a larger population, to which he wishes to apply his results. Problems of inference from sampled data to some more general population are omnipresent in the environmental field. A vast body of statistical theory and procedure has been developed to deal with such problems. This entry concentrates on the basic concepts which underlie the use of these procedures.
