fit.variogram.reml: REML Fit Direct Variogram Partial Sills to Data

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Fit Variogram Sills to Data, using REML (only for direct variograms; not for cross variograms)

Usage

1
fit.variogram.reml(formula, locations, data, model, debug.level = 1, set, degree = 0)

Arguments

formula

formula defining the response vector and (possible) regressors; in case of absence of regressors, use e.g. z~1

locations

spatial data locations; a formula with the coordinate variables in the right hand (dependent variable) side.

data

data frame where the names in formula and locations are to be found

model

variogram model to be fitted, output of vgm

debug.level

debug level; set to 65 to see the iteration trace and log likelihood

set

additional options that can be set; use set=list(iter=100) to set the max. number of iterations to 100.

degree

order of trend surface in the location, between 0 and 3

Value

an object of class "variogramModel"; see fit.variogram

Note

This implementation only uses REML fitting of sill parameters. For each iteration, an n x n matrix is inverted, with $n$ the number of observations, so for large data sets this method becomes demanding. I guess there is much more to likelihood variogram fitting in package geoR, and probably also in nlme.
