Overview

The Citation Program in Applied Geostatistics (CPAG) is designed to provide geoscientists, as well as mining and petroleum engineers, with knowledge and skills that will allow them to better quantify resources and reserves. This program fills an important niche between the conventional one-week intensive course and a two-year master’s degree program. 

Topics covered include geologic rock types and stochastic modeling, trends and non-stationarity, variograms for spatial continuity modeling, kriging for optimal estimation of resources, simulation for uncertainty quantification, multivariate modeling, and decision-making in presence of uncertainty.
