Geostatistics has been knowns as a reliable tool to explore variability in space of any measured parameter. This research aims to study how peat depth change and vary in space using geostatistics aproach. The research took place in a peat land inMuaro Jambi district, Jambi province of Indonesia. The three different areas of peat depth [very deep (area A), deep (area B) and shallow (area C)] were purposely selected to investigate through borehole. From the total 120 boreholes, peat depth data were analyses using ArcGIS geostatistical analyses.The result showed that peat variability in shallow area is higher than that of deep and very deep area.It is also found that the reliable sampling distance in peat exploration should not be less than 230 meter in very deep area, 275 meter in deep area and 41 meter in shallow area.
