Varied natural systems ranging from the growth of cells to pollution dispersal exhibit complex spatio-temporal interactions. Such interactions can rarely be described by known physical laws due to either their complexity or our limited understanding of the processes involved. In such situations mathematical description of these processes for analysis, prediction or control proposes can be obtained from measured observations. This work aims to both extend the models and methods available to represent and estimate a wide variety of spatio-temporal behaviour and to validate these methods on varied dataset. Current work is focusing on adapting these model to represent both the electrical activity in the human brain and the spread of pollutants over the Maltese islands.
