Modeling Uncertainty in the Earth Sciences by Jef Caers

By Jef Caers

Modeling Uncertainty within the Earth Sciences highlights a number of the matters, concepts and functional modeling instruments to be had for modeling the uncertainty of complicated Earth structures and the impression that it has on useful occasions. the purpose of the publication is to supply an introductory evaluate which covers a wide variety of tried-and-tested instruments. Descriptions of innovations, philosophies, demanding situations, methodologies and workflows provide the reader an figuring out of tips on how to make judgements lower than uncertainty for Earth technology difficulties.

The ebook covers key matters equivalent to: Spatial and time element; huge complexity and dimensionality; computation energy; bills of 'engineering' the Earth; uncertainty within the modeling and selection method. concentrating on trustworthy and functional tools this publication presents a useful primer for the advanced region of choice making with uncertainty within the Earth Sciences.
