Dr Alastair J Sinclair, PEng, PGeo UBC Emeritus Professor
Professor Dr Alastair J Sinclair described in Applied Mineral Inventory Estimation how his "exciting and invigorating career" took off when he was exposed to Matheron's ideas, and how he had "the good fortune to work with Journel, Huijbregts and Deraisme". Good grief! Those were Matheron's earliest students who took his musings for dogma, and who didn't have a clue that the variance of the distance-weighted average cum kriged estimate had vanished into thin air on Matheron's watch. Sinclair's list of those who he was "fortunate to have worked with at various times" reads like a Who's who in the world's geostatistical fraternity. Sinclair credits all of them to have contributed to his education. For once I do agree! I'm all in favor of giving credit where credit is due. But to give credit to everybody who has taught Professor Dr Alastair J Sinclair, PEng, PGeo how to apply a flawed variant of applied statistics is a bit over the top.
