AI-GEOSTATS: nugget of a "support"-variogram, given a pointvariogram
- Dear members of the list,
I'm a mining engineering student, following an introductional geostatistics course (22.5h).
In a theoretical exercise, a point-semivariogram is given with a certain nugget-effect. In addition, the point-data are characterized by a Gaussian distribution. "Support"-data are characterized by a Gaussian distribution too, having the same mean and a smaller s. Due to this smaller s, the "support"-semivariogram is smaller then the point-semivariogram.
What about the nugget-effect of this "support"-variogram? Is it related to the nugget-effect of the point-variogram? What is this relationship, or were can I read more about it?
Thanks in advance,

issue is explained clearly in Chapter 3 of Practical
Geostatistics 1979 by Isobel Clark, which is available
free of charge as a download at
It was put as a question to Andre Journel when I waas
learning my geostats in 1972. The nugget effect
reduces by pl/3 where p is the slope of the model
(spherical, linear, whatever) at short distances, l is
the length of the "support" (or area/volume if
necessary) and 3 is 3.0
Merry Christmas one and all
