Space and Space-Time Modeling using Process Convolutions [chapter]

A continuous spatial model can be constructed by convolving a very simple, perhaps independent, process with a kernel or point spread function. This approach for constructing a spatial process offers a number of advantages over specification through a spatial covariogram. In particular, this process convolution specification leads to compuational simplifications and easily extends beyond simple stationary models. This paper uses process convolution models to build space and space-time models
