Partitioning the variance between space and time

Sun, Fubao; Roderick, Michael; Lim, Wee Ho; Zhang , Yongqiang; Bennett, Neil; Roxburgh , Stephen H; Farquhar, Graham


Here we decompose the space-time variance of near-surface air temperature using monthly observations for the global land surface (excluding Antarctica) from 1901-2000. To do that, we developed a new method for partitioning the total space-time variance, here called the grand variance, into separate spatial and temporal components. The temporal component is, in turn, further partitioned into the variance relating to different time periods and we use monthly data to decompose intra- and...[Show more]
