By Erik Vanem (auth.)

This publication presents an instance of a radical statistical remedy of ocean wave information in house and time. It demonstrates how the versatile framework of Bayesian hierarchical space-time versions will be utilized to oceanographic tactics resembling major wave top as a way to describe dependence constructions and uncertainties within the data.

This monograph is a study ebook and it truly is partially cross-disciplinary. The technique itself is firmly rooted within the statistical learn culture, in response to chance concept and stochastic procedures. although, that method has been utilized to an issue within the box of actual oceanography, studying facts for major wave peak, that's of the most important significance to ocean engineering disciplines. certainly, the statistical homes of important wave top are vital for the layout, development and operation of ships and different marine and coastal buildings. moreover, the e-book addresses the query of no matter if weather swap has an impression of the sea wave weather, and if this is the case what that impact will be. hence, this ebook is a vital contribution to the continuing debate on weather switch, its implications and the way to evolve to a altering weather, with a specific concentrate on the maritime industries and the marine surroundings.

This publication will be of price to an individual with an curiosity within the statistical modelling of environmental tactics, and specifically to these with an curiosity within the ocean wave weather. it truly is written on a degree that are meant to be comprehensible to all people with a uncomplicated historical past in statistics or uncomplicated arithmetic, and an creation to a couple easy ideas is equipped within the appendices for the uninitiated reader. The meant readership contains scholars and execs focused on statistics, oceanography, ocean engineering, environmental study, weather sciences and probability overview. additionally, the book’s findings are proper for varied stakeholders within the maritime industries similar to layout workplaces, category societies, send vendors, yards and operators, flag states and intergovernmental enterprises akin to the IMO.

A hierarchical model may contain different levels, and the first level will typically be the observation model or data model. At this level, the observations are often modelled as some hidden or latent process, often construed as the true process, and some uncertainty. In other words, a conditional distribution for the observations are specified conditioned on the latent process and the process model parameters. , a distribution is specified for the latent process given a set of model parameters.
