Introduction to Statistics for Spatio-Temporal Data

Instructor:  Professor Christopher Wikle, University of Missouri

Abstract:  The course gives a contemporary presentation of spatio-temporal processes and data
analysis, bridging classic ideas with modern hierarchical statistical modeling concepts. From
understanding environmental processes and climate trends to developing new technologies for mapping public-health data and the spread of invasive-species, there is a high demand for statistical analyses of data that take spatial, temporal, and spatio-temporal information into account. This course presents a systematic approach to key quantitative techniques for the statistical analysis of such data that features hierarchical statistical modeling, with an emphasis on dynamical spatio-temporal models. The material follows the book by Cressie and Wikle, Statistics for Spatio-Temporal Data (2011) - John Wiley and Sons, Hoboken, NJ, but at a slightly lower level. Many examples will be included, along with some basic applications from various R packages.
