A Primer on Space-Time Modeling from a Bayesian Perspective

The following notes are designed to get the interested reader up and running — developing his or her own spatial or space-time models — as quickly as possible. For better or worse, this means many details regarding alternative modeling, model checking, and computation are omitted for the sake of keeping this primer streamlined. The goal of this primer is to convey an overall sense of what is involved in developing space-time models. Far more detailed accounts of spatial and space-time modeling can be found in standard texts such as Cressie (1991), Stein (1999), Wackernagel (1995), Chile´s and Delfiner (1999), or Banerjee et al. (2003).
