Chapter 18, Data Analysis and Empirical Modeling, presented aspects of development of linear models using multivariate linear regression analysis. This methodology is highly practical and easily utilized by most geologists, but is clearly not the only one available for development of predictive models, nor does it necessarily always provide the most accurate models. Numerous alternate methodologies and emerging methodologies, both process- and effect-oriented, theoretical and empirical, have been and are being developed. This chapter will briefly touch on emerging and alternate methodologies for process- and effect-oriented modeling.
