Professor Marian Scott OBE- Lecture Title: Statistics & the Environment
At the heart of environmental issues lies the need to gather data and evaluate the evidence for what is currently happening, and what may happen in the future. Statistical thinking gives us an enormously powerful basis for doing this, bringing insight into current issues and giving us the tools to talk about the uncertainty associated with what we do and don't know.
Lecture begins 5.15pm. Refreshments will be provided afterwards.
