Generalized Linear Mixed Models with Robust Random Fields for Spatiotemporal Modeling

Implements Bayesian spatial and spatiotemporal models that optionally allow for extreme spatial deviations through time. 'glmmfields' uses a predictive process approach with random fields implemented through a multivariate-t distribution instead of the usual multivariate normal. Sampling is conducted with 'Stan'. References: Anderson and Ward (2019) .


glmmfields 0.1.2

  • Make compatible with R 3.6.0 staged installation and latest rstantools.

glmmfields 0.1.1

  • Changed how Stan finds directories / files


  • Add support for random walk year effects with covariates. There are a few specific cases where covariates or the random year effect are not estimable. Examples are:

    1. estimating an intercept and AR year effects (intercept confounded with 1st year effect)
    2. estimating AR year effects and estimating 'phi' — the AR parameter in spatial field (also confounded)
  • Import S3 methods from rstantools instead of rstanarm (#5)

  • Adjust calculation of year index values to better allow for missing time slices

glmmfields 0.1.0

  • Initial submission to CRAN.
