Geostatistics: Articles and letters
Professor Dr Alastair J Sinclair, PEng, PGeo, CIM Bulletin's most dedicated geostatistical scholar West of the Rocky Mountains, makes the bizarre claim that "the concept of degrees of freedom breaks down in matters of spatial correlation."
Professor Dr Alastair J Sinclair, PEng, PGeo, accepts that the variance of a single distance-weighted average can be replaced with the kriging variance of a set of distance-weighted averages-cum-kriged estimates.
Applied stats examples are documented
Letter to the Editor, The Northern Miner, December 2-8, 2002
I remind Professor Dr Alastair J Sinclair, PEng, PGeo, that he reviewed my work for CIM Bulletin and attended my workshop at UBC.

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".
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.
credits all of them to have contributed to his
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.
