expectation

1. n. [Reservoir Characterization]
The results of extrapolating from a known data point to points away from measurements. In geostatistical modeling, generating expectation trends is a fundamental process that requires procedures to estimate geometric changes by using various statistical approaches. Often, trends in surfaces are estimated and used to provide bounds on possible facies extrapolation.
