Spatio-Temporal Modelling

Various natural systems, such as weather and climate change dynamics, the spread of an infection in human tissue, signal patters in the human brain, the spread of an epidemic, the invasion patterns of birds, insects and plants, house price variations over a region or country, traffic flow dynamics; all exhibit a complex spatio-temporal behaviour. Classical models of such systems which try to represent such behaviour by either ignoring spatial relationships or temporal dynamics have been proven to have serious limitations. Thus the last decade has witnessed a growing interest in developing more complex models that take into account the spatio-temporal relationships within these systems. Work in the Department has focused on developing new models to efficiently represent such behaviour and provide methods for estimation of these models from gathered spatio-temporal data. These models and methods are currently being applied to model the spatio-temporal evolution of ozone concentrations in the earth’s atmosphere.
