Pre-Conference Workshop: ECAS-ENBIS Summer Course - Course 4: Multivariate Spatio-Temporal Methods for Large Datasets

10 September 2017, 14:00 – 17:00

This half-day ENBIS-17 pre-conference workshop will be given by Alessandro Fassò from the University of Bergamo in Italy and is part of the ECAS-ENBIS Summer Course, which can be booked here.

The course will introduce concepts and modelling tools related to vector valued and function valued spatiotemporal large datasets. In particular, considering data in continuous space (geostatistics), spatial covariance functions for large datasets are considering including tapering and dimension reduction techniques. Using these, spatio-temporal models for data in continuous space and discrete time will be developed using the Dynamic Coregionalization Model (DCM), with application to human exposure to air pollution. Functional data analysis is then introduced as a powerful tool for handling advanced technological data. Recent advanced applications will be discussed, including functional control charts with applications to technological data in form of profiles. Moreover functional DCM will be developed and kriging for functional data indexed in space and time will be illustrated in earth observing systems for climate monitoring.
