Environmental Statistics for LSRPs

Environmental Statistics for LSRPs

The use of statistical analysis to evaluate environmental data may be necessary to comply with regulations or for application of technical guidance. The use of statistics may also hold the key to unlocking important information that is otherwise hidden in a set of data. However, identifying appropriate statistical tests and knowing how to apply them can be perplexing, and reviewing statistical data analysis completed by others can be just as challenging.

This program will present statistical concepts and assumptions, review common statistical tests required in regulations and guidance, and address various scenarios that may benefit from and/or require statistical analysis of data. The program will address typical challenges working with environmental data (e.g., non-detects, non-normal distributions, outliers) and include review of statistical analysis case studies used for remedial investigation and remedial action under NJDEP SRP regulations and guidance documents. A hands-on workshop session will allow attendees to work with data using programs such as USEPA ProUCL (individuals or groups). Use of personal computers with Microsoft Excel and Wi-Fi capability for downloading USEPA freeware is encouraged for participation in portions of this course. Techniques for working with large data sets and reviewing statistical evaluation provided by others will also be covered.
