Semiparametric models are frequently employed in spatial statistics, but the high dimensionality of data coming from scientific experiments is causing computational scalability problems to existing semiparametric methods. This project seeks to develop scalability solutions to three semiparametric methods -- namely, data fusion of spatio-temporal processes, esimation of nonstationary covariance functions via spatial deformations, and estimating equation approaches to spatial point processes. The project will also build software that implements the proposed techniques. (AU)
