Objective: to gain insight in a set of spatio-temporal interpolation methods
General description: Modelling spatio-temporal phenomena is a key issue in today's research. However, the extension from pure spatial to a spatio-temporal approach is not trivial. We will look into a set of different perceptions of saptio-temporal dependence and the resulting covariance models (separable, product-sum, metric, asymmetric, ...).
Required back-ground knowledge: Students should be familiar with the basic concepts of kriging.
R packages required: spacetime, gstat, (outlook: spcopula);
Reading material: Gräler, B., L. E. Gerharz, & E. Pebesma (2012): Spatio-temporal analysis and interpolation of PM10 measurements in Europe. ETC/ACM Technical Paper 2011/10, January 2012
