Simple linear procedures for processing correlated observations are considered and interpreted in this chapter. Primarily, they present different schemes for averaging data. These procedures are important because climatology has historically dealt with spatial and temporal averaging of statistically dependent meteorological observations. The accuracy of such averaging is determined by the volume of data arid by its correlation structure. The examples presented in this chapter illustrate the level of accuracy that can be achieved within the framework of some assumptions about such correlation structure. Let us consider the principal relationships of the least squares method for the statistically dependent observations (see Rao, 1973). The basic assumptions are as follows.

Keywords:   autodispersion function, correlated observations, dispersion function, finite differences, instrumental variable, least squares method, mean estimator, normal equations, point estimates, signal ratio
