Advances in sensitivity analysis of uncertainty to changes in sampling density when modeling spatially correlated attributes

Handbook of Mathematical Geosciences: Fifty years of IAMG

Outside Publication: Springer

A comparative analysis of distance methods, kriging and stochastic simulation is conducted for evaluating their capabilities for predicting fluctuations in uncertainty due to changes in spatially correlated samples. It is concluded that distance methods lack the most basic capabilities to assess reliability despite...
