Description :
This paper first summarizes the main concepts of space-time geostatistics. The AA. use here a model-based geostatistical approach to characterize space-time variability. The space-time variable of interest is treated as a sum of independent stationary spatial, temporal, and spatiotemporal components, which leads to a sum-metric space-time variogram model. Methods are illustrated with a case study of space-time interpolation of monthly averages of detected background radiation for a 5-year period (2003-2007) in 4 German states (Niedersachsen, Nordhein-Westfalen, Bremen, and Rheinland-Pfalz).
