Winter 2015 Online Course: Applied Time Series Analysis in Fisheries and Environmental Sciences

Fish 507: Applied Time Series Analysis in Fisheries and Environmental Sciences
Winter 2015
Fisheries Dept, University of Washington

Instructors: Eric Ward, Eli Holmes, Mark Scheuerell

Reviews current applications of univariate and multivariate time series models for biological and environmental data, emphasizing the estimation, inference, and forecasting aspects of time-series models. Explores effects of covariates and anthropogenic drivers for species that are exploited and/or of conservation concern. We taught a similar course 2 years ago. This time we are emphasizing how to fit these models in a Bayesian context with JAGS along with a MLE context with MARSS. We are recording the lectures and you can follow along with the course at:
