Dear colleagues,


On behalf of my co-authors, I am pleased to announce the release of ‘dsmextra’ v1.0.0 - our new R package for diagnosing, summarising, and visualising various forms of extrapolation in multivariate environmental space. The package can be freely downloaded from Github, and a comprehensive tutorial vignette is available here:




Underlying concepts are fully described in our recent technical report:


Bouchet PJ, Miller DL, Roberts JJ, Mannocci L, Harris CM, Thomas L (2019). >From here and now to there and then: Practical recommendations for extrapolating cetacean density surface models to novel conditions. CREEM technical report 2019-01, Centre for Research into Ecological & Environmental Modelling (CREEM), University of St Andrews, 59 p.



dsmextra is an output from the LMR-funded DenMod project (https://synergy.st-andrews.ac.uk/denmod/), which aims to advance available methods and improve practice in density surface modelling. 

The project is an ongoing collaboration between the University of St Andrews, Duke University, NOAA and the United States Navy.
