SMG Open Talk

Dear NU Community,

Nazarbayev University School of Mining and Geosciences launched an SMG Open Talk series for exchanging knowledge and ideas among NU Community. School of Mining and Geosciences Faculty will cover on a variety of topics from Geology, Mining and Petroleum engineering. The SMG Open Talk series is open to all members of NU Community. Our speakers will explain the subject matter, and to define any words or terms that may be unfamiliar to those not having a familiarity with the material being presented.

The next lecture under SMG Open Talk series will take place on September 16, 2022 in Block 6, room 6.302.

Geostatistics: a Tool for Modeling and Interpreting Environmental Phenomena

Geostatistics allows one to interpret the spatial and temporal variations of natural phenomena in a probabilistic language. This technique integrates statistics and mathematical formalisms with geology to model natural phenomena. In this talk, the current trend and future challenges of this young branch of science will be discussed.
