Our Environmental Statistics Courses: 

Great course! We gained thorough knowledge of environmental statistics and comprehensive statistical procedures, enabling us to make scientifically based decisions for compliance with environmental regulations.

Sampling designs for environmental populations. Two-stage, composite, systematic and cluster sampling. Spatial variation and location of hot spots. Trends, control chart monitoring and detection of unusual values. Seasonality. View syllabus
  • Prerequisite: Foundation course or instructor consent.  top

  • Ecological Statistics: [Focus course - 4 days]  Review of framework for statistical thinking (with ecological focus) and STATGRAPHICS. Ecological communities and multivariate data. Spatial pattern analysis. Community structure, classification and ordination. Species abundance and affinity. Population estimation. Prerequisite: Foundation course. View syllabus
  • Prerequisite: Foundation or instructor consent.  top


Superb course in environmental statistics and Statgraphics. Our scientists are now well equipped to work with environmental data and effectively accomplish their tasks to monitor and evaluate land reclamation projects for regulatory compliance. We use Statgraphics throughout and continue to purchase the software from Alpine Analytics.

Thanks for the first rate instruction in environmental statistics and Statgraphics.
R. V., Senior Vegetation Analyst, Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality

We are already putting to use what we learned with Statgraphics in our analysis of watershed and aquifer data. Very useful material and software.
