Stochastic Modelling


To provide a theoretical and practical basis for stochastic modelling of spatio-temporal processes.


Persons whishing to learn how to address uncertainty in environmental modeling.


This course introduces the modeling of uncertain spatio-temporal processes. The course gives an introduction into the characteristics of stochastic variables and  how these can be used to represent uncertain model inputs and parameter. Modellers will learn how to assess stochastic models using Monte Carlo simulations and statistics. The Map Algebra course and the Dynamic Modelling course are a prerequisite.
