Environmental Analysis book from C.H.I.P.S.

Analyzing Environmental Data
Walter W. Piegorsch

Analyzing Environmental Data is based on a course which the author has taught for many years, and prepares students for careers in environmental analysis centered on statistics and allied quantitative methods of evaluation.

Analyzing Environmental Data extends beyond the introductory level, allowing students and environmental science practitioners to develop the expertise to design and perform sophisticated environmental data analyses.
