  1. [spatial statistics (use for geostatistics)] A parameter of a variogram or semivariogram model that represents a value that the variogram tends toward when distances become large. Under second-order stationarity, variables become uncorrelated at large distances, so the sill of the semivariogram is equal to the variance of the random variable. Media/sill.gif
