Statistical Methods for Censored Environmental Data UsingMinitab® and R, Second Edition introduces and explains methodsfor analyzing and interpreting censored data in the environmentalsciences. Adapting survival analysis techniques from other fields,the book translates well-established methods from other disciplinesinto new solutions for environmental studies.
This new edition applies methods of survival analysis, includingmethods for interval-censored data to the interpretation oflow-level contaminants in environmental sciences and occupationalhealth. Now incorporating the freely available R software as wellas Minitab® into the discussed analyses, the book featuresnewly developed and updated material including:
A new chapter on multivariate methods for censored data
Use of interval-censored methods for treating true nondetects aslower than and separate from values between the detection andquantitation limits ("remarked data")
A section on summing data with nondetects
A newly written introduction that discusses invasive data,showing why substitution methods fail
Expanded coverage of graphical methods for censored data
The author writes in a style that focuses on applications ratherthan derivations, with chapters organized by key objectives such ascomputing intervals, comparing groups, and correlation. Examplesaccompany each procedure, utilizing real-world data that can beanalyzed using the Minitab® and R software macros available onthe book's related website, and extensive references direct readersto authoritative literature from the environmental sciences.
Statistics for Censored Environmental Data Using Minitab®and R, Second Edition is an excellent book for courses onenvironmental statistics at the upper-undergraduate and graduatelevels. The book also serves as a valuable referencefor¿environmental professionals, biologists, and ecologistswho focus on the water sciences, air quality, and soil science.
