“Sampling – is not gambling

Attributed to Pierre Gy (1924–2015), founder of the Theory of Sampling (TOS)

 

One may argue that there are more important things to worry about than correct, representative sampling in 2020 (and 2021). But consider the recent breakthrough from scientists investigating how city and municipal sewage systems can be used to monitor the community spread of SARS-CoV-2. And let’s not discount the vital interest in false negatives... We are constantly reminded about the importance of the quality of analytical results, upon which critical and vital decisions are made.

About the Author

author esbensen

Kim H. Esbensen

Although originally trained as a geologist/geochemist, it took 30 years before Kim Esbensen actually started to work in a bona fide geoscience institution. “In the meantime, I toured the engineering world extensively, establishing two research groups dealing with PAT and chemometrics in the process.” He first found the real love of his life, scientifically speaking, some 15 years ago, with the Theory of Sampling. The field of representative sampling has occupied his career ever since: “The complexities of heterogeneity is fascinating. But unfortunately its impact is often missing from analysis, education, and in the industries involved.” He is specifically interested in the interaction between materials heterogeneity, representative sampling and augmented measurement uncertainty.
