In this work we consider a hierarchical spatio-temporal model for particulate matter (PM) concentration in the North-Italian region Piemonte. The model involves a Gaussian Field (GF), affected by a measurement error, and a state process characterized by a first order autoregressive dynamics and spatially correlated innovations. This kind of model is well discussed and widely used in the air quality literature thanks to its flexibity in modeling the effect of relevant covariates (i.e… CONTINUE READING
