Keywords: Spatial-temporal fields ; Bayesian empirical orthogonal function ; Random matrix ; Bayesian hierarchical method ; MCMC algorithm

This talk will introduce the Bayesian empirical orthogonal method (BEOF) after exploring the flaw in the usual implementation of the empirical orthogonal functions to capture the main spatial pattern over a given geographical region. We comapre the BEOF with the usual EOFs in two simulation studies in spatio-temporal processes and verify the improvement of this new method.
