Recent grant success for Dr Claire Miller

Friday 9th October, 2015

Dr Claire Miller (PI) has been successful in receiving funding from the EPSRC funded SECURE network for the project ‘Statistical software to identify spatiotemporal patterns and coherence over river networks.’ which will run from Nov 2015-April 2016.

Environment agencies invest a wealth of resource in monitoring river nutrient levels in order to protect water quality and for compliance reporting to Europe.  Advanced statistical models incorporating the river structure can aid in the identification of common spatiotemporal nutrient patterns and potentially provide efficiency savings in the monitoring budget.  In this project, statisticians and environmental scientists from The University of Glasgow, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the Environment Agency will collaborate to develop and implement novel statistical software tools, for use within the environmental science community, to identify spatiotemporal and coherent river water quality patterns.
