Suppose we are searching for a number of buried objects (such as hazardous waste drums) which are scattered as random in three dimensions.If each object is equally likely to be found at any location, we can represent the objects as a set of Poisson objects, with l objects per unit volume. Now suppose that you have excavated a small area measuring 10 x 10 x 2 m and have found 4 buried drums. How many drums would you expect to find in the entire site (200 x 200 x 2 m)? How would you

Unformatted text preview: characterize the accuracy of your prediction in quantitative terms? Suppose that 100 rainfall events occur at random over a 12 month period. What is the probability that the number occurring over a given 6 month period is between 40 and 60 ? Estimate the covariance and the coefficient of correlation between the flow rate and surface area data for a reservoir given below:...
