Statistics for Environmental Professionals
How do we come to know something about our world? Environmental science uses statistics as a tool to aid in this quest. Statistics covers how we collect data, how we characterize it, how we make inferences about the world using it, and what assumptions we make in the process. In this course students will gain an understanding of the basic principles of sampling design, probability and statistical distributions, data characterization, and common approaches to statistical modeling with an emphasis on regression and correlation and ways to evaluate differences among populations we have sampled. Students will explore literature to understand how these techniques are currently used in environmentally-based professions.
