Week 9: Applied Time-Series Analysis for Fisheries and Environmental Data

Class material: webpage

Week 9: Bayesian hierarchical multivariate state-space models
This week, we discuss fitting non-linear MARSS models and MARSS models with non-Gaussian errors using Bayesian methods. This is a very brief introduction and many shows some examples of how one sets up a MARSS model in JAGS and shows you what the posteriors of some models look like.
* Posteriors for MARSS models
* Intro to JAGS (the Gibbs sampler we will be using)
* many examples of fitting non-linear and non-Gaussian MARSS models

Lab 9 The main lab is to go through the JAGS examples shown in the lecture.
Lecture 9 You can find the pdf of lecture on the class webpage along with the link to watch a recording of the lecture.
