Hi guys having a bit of trouble getting my head around the short(nugget), intermediate (geometric anisotropy) and large scale variance (zonal anisotropy)
does the large scale variance mean that the property has a correlation over large distance and intermediate means correlation on a short lag?

help at defining these terms would really help

thanks in advance
