Environmental studies imply usually large amounts of experimental data, whose analysis should allow extracting the relevant information hidden behind them. This subject introduces some core advanced multivariate statistical techniques. They will allow a reduction in the dimensionality of the datasets and the discovery/description of sample groups. Commonly-available computing power simplify the treatment of large databases, which are quite frequent nowadays and, therefore, this subject is of general interest for environmentalists.
