Abstract: In this paper, we suggest using a skew Gaussian-log Gaussian model for the analysis of spatial censored data from a Bayesian point of view. This approach furnishes an extension of the skew log Gaussian model to accommodate to both skewness and heavy tails and also censored data. All of the characteristics mentioned are three pervasive features of spatial data.

We utilize data augmentation method and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms to do posterior calculations. The methodology is illustrated using simulated data, as well as applying it to a real data set.

Keywords: Censored data, data augmentation, non-Gaussian spatial models, outlier, unified skew Gaussian.
