Where is she right now?
Zero to Kriging: As the name suggests, this course takes interested students from no knowledge of statistics or geostatistics through to the mysteries of ordinary kriging and its variants in 30 hours (or less). This is a classroom course and includes manual exercises to reinforce understanding of the techniques. Contact Isobel for information re venues.
Practical Geostatistics This course is 3 days which are equivalent to Zero to Kriging with lectures augmented by practical PC/laptop-based exercises covering many different applications. Contact Isobel if you have questions about this.
BYO Geostatistics: This course allows the participant to analyse his/her own data using the Geostokos Toolkit under supervision. Tutorial data sets are provided to accustom the student to the software. Recent courses have attracted participants with applications varying from sea-bird protection zones, river pollution, pests in orange groves to more traditional(?) applications such as groundwater hydrology and geological resource estimation. Contact Isobel for local information re venue, accommodation and so on.
Real Geostatistics: This is a new(ish) course, run for the first time at the University of Florida, Gainesville in December 2005. Described as an "intermediate" course on geostatistics, this two-day seminar uses case studies to illustrate the use of geostatistical methods in a variety of applications
