Geostatistics can be defined as the statistical study of phenomena that fluctuate in space and time. Originally the objective of the field was to improve forecasts of ore grade and reserves, but the mathematical generality of the approach has led to the application of geostatistics to other
areas, ranging from pest control to pollution monitoring and petroleum reservoir characterization. GSLIB provides a source code that can be used as a starting point for custom programs, advanced applications, and research. GSLIB is addressed to the reasonably advanced practitioner or researcher who
needs powerful, flexible, and documented programs that are not confined to user-friendly menus. It offers the most advanced methods in the field, including indicator kriging and several forms of conditional simulations, all developed in three-dimensions, and can be run in any kind of computer. The
package consists of the GSLIB user's guide and FORTRAN source code on two diskettes.
