Collaborative Research Team Project: 2021-2024
This project aims to bring together hydrology and statistical scientists in order to develop new generalizable statistical learning tools using multivariate functional data to (1) identify causes and consequences of environmental disturbances, (2) identify individual and interactive controls on landscape vulnerability to multi-dimensional environmental disturbances and (3) reflect the bi-directional feedback between environmental disturbances and the hydrologic function of earth systems, across distinct geographies and environmental settings in Canada. These scientific aims will require corresponding advances in statistical modelling and analysis of multivariate functional data.
