  journal={arXiv: Applications},
The importance of modelling temperature fields goes beyond the need to understand a region's climate and serves too as a starting point for understanding their socioeconomic, and health consequences. The topography of the study region contributes much to the complexity of modelling these fields and demands flexible spatio-temporal models that are able to handle nonstationarity and changes in trend. In this paper, we develop a flexible stochastic spatio-temporal model for daily temperatures in…

A Spatiotemporal Approach for Predicting Wind Speed Along the Coast of Valparaiso, Chile

In this work we propose a spatio-temporal approach for predicting the wind speed nearby the coast of Valparaiso, Chile, by using the observations collected by some meteorological stations and the



Daily minimum and maximum temperature simulation over complex terrain

Spatiotemporal simulation of minimum and maximum temperature is a fundamental requirement for climate impact studies and hydrological or agricultural models. Particularly over regions with variable

An overview of the Global Historical Climatology Network monthly mean temperature data set, version 3

[1] Since the early 1990s the Global Historical Climatology Network-Monthly (GHCN-M) data set has been an internationally recognized source of data for the study of observed variability and change in

An Overview of the Global Historical Climatology Network-Daily Database

AbstractA database is described that has been designed to fulfill the need for daily climate data over global land areas. The dataset, known as Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN)-Daily, was

Nonparametric Estimation of Nonstationary Spatial Covariance Structure

Abstract Estimation of the covariance structure of spatial processes is a fundamental prerequisite for problems of spatial interpolation and the design of monitoring networks. We introduce a

Physiographically sensitive mapping of climatological temperature and precipitation across the conterminous United States

Spatial climate data sets of 1971–2000 mean monthly precipitation and minimum and maximum temperature were developed for the conterminous United States. These 30‐arcsec (∼800‐m) grids are the

A High-Resolution Climate Model for the U.S. Pacific Northwest: Mesoscale Feedbacks and Local Responses to Climate Change*

Abstract Simulations of future climate scenarios produced with a high-resolution climate model show markedly different trends in temperature and precipitation over the Pacific Northwest than in the

High-quality spatial climate data sets for the United States and beyond

A number of peer-reviewed, spatial climate data sets of excellent quality and detail for the United States are now available. The data sets are suitable for a variety of modeling, analysis, and

Interpolation with uncertain spatial covariances: a Bayesian alternative to Kriging

The Prism Approach to Mapping Precipitation and Temperature

PRISM (Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model) is a climate analysis system that uses point data, a digital elevation model (DEM), and other spatial datasets to generate gridded

A Statistical-Topographic Model for Mapping Climatological Precipitation over Mountainous Terrain

Abstract The demand for climatological precipitation fields on a regular grid is growing dramatically as ecological and hydrological models become increasingly linked to geographic information
