About this book

This book provides a broad introduction to the fascinating subject of environmental space-time processes; addressing the role of uncertainty. Within that context, it covers a spectrum of technical matters from measurement to environmental epidemiology to risk assessment. It showcases non-stationary vector-valued processes, while treating stationarity as a special case. The contents reflect the authors' cumulative knowledge gained over many years of consulting and research collaboration. In particular, with members of their research group, they developed within a hierarchical Bayesian framework, the new statistical approaches presented in the book for analyzing, modeling, and monitoring environmental spatio-temporal processes. Furthermore they indicate new directions for development.

This book contains technical and non-technical material and it is written for statistical scientists as well as consultants, subject area researchers and students in related fields.

Contents

First encounters.- Case study.- Uncertainty.- Measurement.- Modelling.- Covariances.- Classical approaches.- Bayesian kriging.- Hierarchical methods.- Multivariate modelling.- Network design.- Extremes.- Risk assessment.- R tutorial.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "The authors are experts in environmental space-time processes and cover in this book a wealth of methodology for dealing with data from this field. ...It is certainly a very useful book for researchers and consultants in this challenging field." N.D.C. Veraverbeke for Short Book Reviews of the ISI, December 2006 "This book contains a very interesting summarization of the current state of space-time process modeling, a topic on which the authors are eminently qualified to write upon, having worked extensively on this subject for over 30 years. ...I found this book very stimulating and would recommend it to any statistician wishing to analyze, or gain an understanding of, environmental space-time data." Jon Wakefield for Biometrics 63, 624-625, June 2007 "The book has several distinct features, namely the writing style, topics covered, case studies used and guidance for numerical implementation. The book is well written and well structured. It is also self-contained and nits material flows in a natural and systematic order. Each chapter starts with motivating examples, which help to orient the reader to the broader picture. ...I give the authors a very high mark for producing such an excellent book, one that will be of great service to the field of environmental statistics." Abdel El-Shaarawi, Environmentrics, January 2007 "Le and Zidek's well-written book presents a predominantly Bayesian approach to spatiotemporal statistics, with an emphasis on entropy-based sampling design methods. ! They provide a superb review of spatial statistics ! . The book's main selling points are its readability and coverage of methods not found elsewhere in a single volume ! . Le and Zidek have provided an excellent reference on design-based models for environmental processes ! ." (Mevin B. Hooten, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 102 (480), 2007)
