Bivariate geostatistical modelling: a review and an application to spatial variation in radon concentrations

  title={Bivariate geostatistical modelling: a review and an application to spatial variation in radon concentrations},
  author={Thomas R. Fanshawe and Peter J Diggle},
  journal={Environmental and Ecological Statistics},
We present a comprehensive review of multivariate geostatistical models, focusing on the bivariate case. We compare in detail three approaches, the linear model of coregionalisation, the common component model and the kernel convolution approach, and discuss similarities between them. We demonstrate the merits of the common component class of models as a flexible means for modelling bivariate geostatistical data of the type that frequently arises in environmental applications. In particular, we… CONTINUE READING
