Spatial statistical modeling tools for streams

Documents and Media Posted on: January 23, 2015
Stream network structure, connectivity, and flow direction strongly affect spatial patterns in stream attributes. Most statistical analyses ignore network structure and may provide biased results for stream data. Key Findings:Document Type: Briefing Papers

Tools for spatial statistical modeling on stream networks (STARS and SSN)

Projects Posted on: January 22, 2015
Spatial statistical models for streams provide a new set of analytical tools that can be used to improve predictions of physical, chemical, and biological characteristics on stream networks. The Spatial Tools for the Analysis of River Systems (STARS) and Spatial Stream Network (SSN) models are unique because they account for patterns of spatial autocorrelation among locations based on both Euclidean and in-stream distances
