Workshop organised by eLTER SPF Training working group 4.

Given by Ulrike Obertegger

An introduction to the challenges of time-series data and demonstration of different analysis methods. This is not a technical course but a practical demonstration of what can be done to solve certain ecological questions. All the analyses are done in R and thus a basic understanding of R coding is helpful but not necessary.


  • Introduction on basic terminology
  • Classic time-series analyses. Mann Kendall, Sen Theil trend estimation
  • Change point analysis
  • Modeling time-series with cosine trends
  • GAM
  • Clustering of time-series with DTW
