Environmental Data Analysis: Methods and Applications by Zhihua Zhang

By Zhihua Zhang

Most environmental facts contain a wide measure of complexity and uncertainty. Environmental information research is created to supply glossy quantitative instruments and methods designed particularly to satisfy the desires of environmental sciences and similar fields. This ebook has a magnificent assurance of the scope. major suggestions defined during this booklet are types for linear and nonlinear environmental structures, statistical & numerical tools, information envelopment research, probability tests and existence cycle checks. those state of the art options have attracted major consciousness over the last many years in environmental tracking, modeling and selection making. Environmental info research explains rigorously numerous facts research tactics and strategies in a transparent, concise, and simple language and is written in a self-contained method that's available to researchers and complicated scholars in technological know-how and engineering. this is often a superb reference for scientists and engineers who desire to examine, interpret and version information from a variety of resources, and is additionally an incredible graduate-level textbook for classes in environmental sciences and similar fields.
