  • Understand the place of geostatistical models of heterogeneity and uncertainty in modern resource/reserve evaluation.
  • Explore and apply simulation/uncertainty management concepts.
  • Acquire knowledge in topics such as geologic rock types and stochastic modeling, trends and non-stationarity, variograms for spatial continuity modeling, kriging for optimal estimation of resources, and multivariate modeling.
  • Learn about important geostatistical concepts and tools.
  • Apply specialized knowledge and skills for enhanced job performance and career advancement.
Take note:

  • Though not recommended, part of this course may be completed as self-directed study with online support, including for the submission of assignments.
