Modeling the Correlation Structure of the TOMS Ozone Data

Dongping Fang


University of Chicago - Department of Statistics

The satellite-based instrument TOMS (TOTAL OZONE MAPPING SPECTROMETER) measures total column ozone with high precision and high spatial and temporal resolutions. We will view the total column ozone field as a random field, and develop physically based space-time correlation models of the total column ozone field that fit the data well and whose parameter values have physical interpretations.
