Spatio-temporal Quantication of Rainfall in Burkina-Faso by Regression Kriging

Spatio-temporal geostatistical models are increasingly used in hydrology, particularly for river flow and precipitation forecasting. This study focuses on the space-time regression kriging of rainfall data in Burkina-Faso. Some fundamental aspects of spatio-temporal residual kriging are introduced. New results on the spatio-temporal model and its estimators are presented. Moreover, a practical aspect is proposed with spatial and temporal distribution of total rainfall amounts recorded in ten regions of Burkina-Faso.
