- 12 Jan: Skim Bivand Chapter 1, Read Bivand Sections 2.1 and 2.2. Practice
the R commands in section 2.2. On Thursday, be prepared to ask questions about anything
in section 2.2 that you don't understand.
If you are new to R, you may find it helpful to skim The R for Ecologists document written by Dave Roberts. I find it more focused than the general Introduction to R (pdf) document.

- 19 Jan: Skim Bivand section 3.1 and perhaps 3.2. Focus on 3.2 if prefer lattice graphics instead of base graphics
- 26 Jan: Bivand sections 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 8.5 (Intro), 8.5.1

We'll talk about variograms (section 8.4) after we talk about kriging. - 2 Feb: Bivand section 8.4, omitting section 8.4.5 (multivariate) for now
- 4 Feb: Semivariogram models, pp. 84-97 in Webster and Oliver, Geostatistics for Environmental Scientists.
