Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is an excellent supplementary text for courses on environmental statistics or reference for researchers and practitioners." (Book News, December 2009)

From the Publisher

This book explains the statistical methods used to analyze the huge volume of data that groundwater monitoring wells produce in a comprehensive manner accessible to engineers and scientists who may not have a strong background in statistics. In addition, the book provides statistical methods to make the most accurate use of the data and shows how to set up an effective monitoring system. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
If you're looking for a helpful perspective on statistical methodologies related to "groundwater detection monitoring," this book is a good place to start.
The book contains much valuable information for properly implementing detection monitoring plans. However, extracting this information requires much effort. The book appears to be multiple publications cobbled together. Thus, consistency between each chapter/section is poor. This, plus some misprints, made the understanding of the subjects presented more time consuming than should have been necessary.
I little editing and this material would be of great value to environmental professionals involved with this complex topic.

EPA has foisted a war on the enviro world with RCRA stats guidance; lets statisticians into world they do not understand and stomps all over hydrogeochem expertise with mandated blithering nonsense. Gibbon et al are part of the charge and their book reflects the lust to colonize, early drafts show the rush, index not indexed, skimpy poor graphs and lots of filler tables of useless stats; but the main error is the substitution of stats for geochem judgement. You get an outlier, you used to do QA from lab report to re-analysis to resample if indicated; now you are supposed to do a Shewart-CUSUM chart (the fact it is a "chart" rather than a graph shows we are out of science and into the accountant world). The late Shewart himself acknowledged his "control charts" were designed for production monitoring not (and not appropriate to) description of the natural world. Now they are milking the seminar circuits. Now there are Vultures out there selling very costly packages. State agencies have taken this up for RCRA facilities groundwater and enact even more stupid rules: now you see control charts for water level. Watch for EPA to be repulsed on yet another misguided assault.

This is certainly not a book that you can rely on for the statistical data analysis. Statistical formulations and tables seem to be associated with mathematical flaws. Most of the examples are vague and unable to provide a clear picture of the discussed subject matters. Furthermore, the index has not been updated for the current edition where the page numbers do not match the subjects in the book.I believe these types of reference books should be authored by people who have solid practical experience and knowledge of contaminant hydrogeology. At least, the authors should have consulted with professionals in this field before publishing the book. The subject sounds very impressive, but the entire book needs to be revised.
