The Elements of Geology
by William Harmon Norton
Publisher: Ginn & company 1905
Number of pages: 461

It is important for geologists to be aware that the usual multivariate statistical techniques are not applicable to constrained data. It's also important to have access to appropriate techniques as they become available. This is the aim of this book.
