Environmental Statistics Section
The Environmental Statistics Section was originally formed as a Study Group in 1996 under the auspices of the General Applications Section, but now has full Section status. The committee has been organising meetings on a wide variety of topics of interest to statisticians and other environmental scientists. Our objectives include acting as a national focus for statisticians involved in environmental work. Similar groups have been formed elsewhere including the American Statistical Association's Section on Statistics and the Environment (ENVR). The Section also provides a cadre of experts on whom the Society can call for professional advice.
As well as organising meetings, the Section maintains the ENVSTAT mailing list. This provides a forum for announcements and discussion on topics relating to environmental statistics. The ENVSTAT home page also contains an archive of material relating to previous meetings organised by the Environmental Statistics Section.
These are listed below; details can also be found on the ENVSTAT home page.
