Mål

The objective of the course is to introduce more advanced sampling theory, with a focus on methods suitable for environmental inventories and monitoring. Balanced and spatially balanced sampling will be introduced, as well as general model-assisted estimation. These techniques are used to integrate auxiliary information from registers or remote sensing into the sampling strategy to improve the estimation of population parameters. The course is built on lectures, exercises and computer exercises. Exercises and computer exercises are mandatory.
