Organizing principles for environmental statistics: CS16-503/8E-PDF

"The organization of environment statistics offers challenges both old and new. Traditional problems of definitions and classifications, for example of wastes and pollutants, are common. But whole new challenges, such as the need for conceptual frameworks and the existence of gaps in our scientific knowledge, abound as well, Since "the environment" is all-encompassing and ill-understood, there is an ongoing debate among some statisticians whether we should be publishing imperfect and incomplete data or waiting for the science to catch up. This article offers some approaches, based on Canadian experience, to this still experimental subject area"--Introduction, p. 1.
