Description
This study is an exploration of the methods of spatial and temporal analysis and extension, focused on an investigation of Australian climate fields. The analysis is presented as a progression from the one-dimensional temporal analysis of site data, to the investigation of the spline spatial interpolation method, to higher dimensional spatio-temporal modelling. This study also forms the foundation for further spatiotemporal modelling of other variables, particularly rainfall. In this thesis, mathematical models of climatic variables are devised for the purpose of producing longer-term forecasts. The models constructed predict the spatial distribution of climatic variables for the Australian continent. An appreciation of the space-time relationships of climatic variables is developed through a series of models that use different methods of approaching these relationships.
