We discuss selected applications of statistical theory and practice as motivated by and applied to environmental sciences. Included in the presentation are illustrations on how the interaction between environmental scientists and quantitative researchers has been used to enhance and further learning in both areas, and how this interaction provides a source of further challenges and growth for the statistical community.
