Rejoinder on: A general science-based framework for dynamical spatio-temporal models

  title={Rejoinder on: A general science-based framework for dynamical spatio-temporal models},
  author={Christopher K. Wikle and Mevin B. Hooten},
Spatio-temporal statistical models are increasingly being used across a wide variety of scientific disciplines to describe and predict spatially-explicit processes that evolve over time. Correspondingly, in recent years there has been a significant amount of research on new statistical methodology for such models. Although descriptive models that approach the problem from the second-order (covariance) perspective are important, and innovative work is being done in this regard, many real-world… 
A Four Dimensional Spatio-Temporal Analysis of an Agricultural Dataset
It is found that response cropping is generally more effective than long fallow cropping in reducing soil moisture at the depths considered, and if the authors wish to reduce the possibility of deep drainage and increased groundwater salinity, the recommended cropping system is response Cropping.
A Constructive Spatio-Temporal Approach to Modeling Spatial Covariance
I present an approach for modeling areal spatial covariance by considering the stationary distribution of a spatio-temporal Markov random walk. In the areal data case, this stationary distribution
Hierarchical nonlinear, multivariate, and spatially-dependent time-frequency functional methods
Notions of time and frequency are important constituents of most scientific inquiries, providing complimentary information. In an era of ``big data," methodology for analyzing functional and/or image
Inference for Size Demography From Point Pattern Data Using Integral Projection Models
The approach views the observed size distribution at a given time as a point pattern over a bounded interval, and builds a three-stage hierarchical model to infer about the dynamic intensities used to explain the observed point patterns.
Bayesian sediment transport model for unisize bed load
This approach provides a means to rigorously estimate model parameter distributions, such as critical shear, given observations of sediment transport; provides probabilistically based predictions that are robust and easily interpretable; facilitates conceptual model discrimination; and incorporates expert judgment into model inference and predictions.
Linking mosquito surveillance to dengue fever through Bayesian mechanistic modeling
It is found that control was generally more effective when implemented in periods of relatively low mosquito mortality (when mosquito abundance was also generally low) and correlations suggest that mosquito control is most effective in situations in which transmission is already limited by mosquito abundance.
2 A Continuous Space-Time Model : The Advection-Diffusion SPDE
Increasingly larger data sets of processes in space and time ask for statistical models and methods that can cope with such data. We show that solutions of stochastic advectiondiffusion partial
Disentangling spatio-temporal processes in a hierarchical system: a case study in fisheries discards
A hierarchical spatial predictive process (PP) combined with a separable temporal PP to disentangle and describe those overlapping processes in one very frequent setting in ecology and evolution: multilevel spatio-temporally indexed data.


Hierarchical Bayesian Spatio-Temporal Models for Population Spread
There is a long history in the ecological sciences concerning the development of mathematical models for describing the distribution of organisms over time and space. Although such models have
Estimation of Parameterized Spatio-Temporal Dynamic Models
Predictive spatio-temporal models for spatially sparse environmental data
A model building strategy designed to work within a family of vector autoregressive models for time series being recorded at specific spatial locations is presented and evidence that a parametric modeling of the spatio-temporal cor- relation function is not appropriate because it rests on too strong assumptions is found.
Dynamic Models for Spatio-Temporal Data
We propose a model for nonstationary spatio-temporal data. To account for spatial variability, we model the mean function at each time period as a locally-weighted mixture of linear regressions. To
Combining Information Across Spatial Scales
A Bayesian hierarchical framework is developed and examined by which the combination of such information sources can be accomplished based on wind information from satellite observations and weather center, computer model output for spatial prediction of an important quantity known as streamfunction.
Hierarchical Bayesian space-time models
Space-time data are ubiquitous in the environmental sciences. Often, as is the case with atmo- spheric and oceanographic processes, these data contain many different scales of spatial and temporal
Spatial dynamic factor analysis
A new class of space-time models derived from standard dynamic factor models that implies nonseparable space- time variation to observables, despite its conditionally independent nature, while reducing the overall dimensionality of the problem.
A hierarchical Bayesian non-linear spatio-temporal model for the spread of invasive species with application to the Eurasian Collared-Dove
A hierarchical Bayesian model for population spread is proposed that accommodates data sources with errors, dependence structures between population dynamics parameters, and takes into account prior scientific understanding via non-linear relationships between model parameters and space-time response variables.
Spatial Modeling With Spatially Varying Coefficient Processes
In many applications, the objective is to build regression models to explain a response variable over a region of interest under the assumption that the responses are spatially correlated. In nearly
Spatio-temporal statistical models with applications to atmospheric processes
This doctoral dissertation is presented as three self-contained papers. An introductory chapter considers traditional spatio-temporal statistical methods used in the atmospheric sciences from a
