Time series models for ecologists (TSME02)

https://www.prstatistics.com/course/time-series-models-for-ecologists-tsme02/

This course will be delivered by Dr. Andrew Parnell from the 1st - 5th 
October 2018 in Glasgow.

Course Overview:
This course will cover time series analysis with a particular focus on 
applications in ecology and is relevant to many marine mammal datasets 
that involve sampling time or seasonality for example. All methods will 
be illustrated using the free, open-source software package R. Time 
Series data are ubiquitous in the physical sciences, and models for 
their behaviour enable scientists to understand temporal dynamics and 
predict future values. Participants will be taught a wide range of 
suitable time series models for both discrete and continuous time 
systems. The course will cover a range of techniques from simple 
exponential smoothing and ARIMA modelling approaches up to complex 
Bayesian models. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the 
models being fitted, and be able interpret the results appropriately. 
Participants are encouraged to bring their own data sets for discussion 
with the course tutors.
