The literature on geostatistics has rapidly expanded in the past decade because geostatistical techniques and methodologies have become more mainstream throughout the business, scientific, and engineering communities. The earth sciences continue to be a proving ground for many new geostatistical ideas and developments, building on knowledge and early notions developed throughout a period of 40 yr. The following bibliography contains approximately 1600 citations spanning the history of geostatistics that have a particular bearing on petroleum exploration and development, petroleum engineering and reservoir characterization, and the oil and gas aspects of geological investigation. The bibliography is organized into the seven general categories: case studies; methodological applications; theoretical developments; dissertations and theses; software, software applications, and user manuals; general-interest articles, discussions, and commentaries; and books, reviews of books, and course notes.
