Workshop: Statistical Methods for Combining Environmental Information
Primary objectives of the NISS-USEPA cooperative research agreement were to identify important environmental problems to which statistical science could contribute, to perform interdisciplinary research on these problems and stimulate related research and problem identification within the broader statistical community, to assess important examples and areas of environmetric research, and to identify new research problems and directions. To provide a forum for identifying and examining new research and problem areas, a NISS-USEPA workshop series was established within the cooperative research program.
