Statistics for Environmental Engineers

Скачать в pdf «Statistics for Environmental Engineers»


We have not tried to discuss every statistical method that is used to interpret environmental data. To do so would be impossible. Likewise, we cannot mention every environmental problem that involves statistics. The statistical methods selected for discussion are those that have been useful in our work, which is environmental engineering in the areas of water and wastewater treatment, industrial pollution control, and environmental modeling. If your special interest is air pollution control, hydrology, or geostatistics, your work may require statistical methods that we have not discussed. Some topics have been omitted precisely because you can find an excellent discussion in other books. We hope that whatever kind of environmental engineering work you do, this book will provide clear and useful guidance on data collection and analysis.

The Authors


Paul Mac Berthouex is Emeritus Professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he has been on the faculty since 1971. He received his M.S. in sanitary engineering from the University of Iowa in 1964 and his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1970. Professor Berthouex has taught a wide range of environmental engineering courses, and in 1975 and 1992 was the recipient of the Rudolph Hering Medal, American Society of Civil Engineers, for most valuable contribution to the environmental branch of the engineering profession. Most recently, he served on the Government of India’s Central Pollution Control Board.


In addition to Statistics for Environmental Engineers, 1st Edition (1994, Lewis Publishers), Professor Berthouex has written books on air pollution and pollution control. He has been the author or co-author of approximately 85 articles in refereed journals.
