Richard Webster, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden Dr Webster is the Senior Research Fellow at Rothamsted Research. Margaret A. Oliver, Visiting Professor, Department of Soil Science, University of Reading Professor Oliver has taught geostatistics, applied statistics, multivariate analysis and pedology to undergraduates and postgraduates. She also established a short geostatistics course while at the University of Birmingham, which has now been taught in several countries (e.g. Sweden, USA and Mexico). She is the author of over 70 papers and two co-authored books.
"This is certainly an invaluable text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of spatial variation and environmental research." (International Journal of Environmental and Analytical Chemistry, August 2008)
