- ... The loss function expresses the costs to an organization that result from decisions made using erroneous information. In closely constrained circumstances, such as remediation of soil on contaminated land prior to development, it has proved possible to compute loss functions and to use these to guide rational decision making on the amount of resource to spend on sampling to collect soil informatio ...

- ... Deficiency or excess of certain trace elements in the soil causes problems for agriculture, including disorders of grazing ruminants. Geostatistics has been used to map the probability that trace element concentrations in soil exceed or fall below particular thresholds. However, deficiency or toxicity problems may depend on interactions between elements in the soil. Here we show how cokriging from ...
