Editorial: Special issue on time series in the environmental sciences
Environmental processes and ecosystem phenomena have deservedly received considerable attention over the last decade by both scientists and those involved in public-policy decisions. Many of the investigations in these areas are a result of potential climate change and its far-reaching impacts. Nonetheless, a common thread in environmental investigations is the need for methodological tools capable of describing and predicting these complex, and typically high-dimensional, processes. This themed issue on time series in the environmental sciences focuses on novel approaches to modelling in this context.
