Summary.  The complex interrelated nature of multivariate systems can result in relationships and covariance structures that change over time. Smooth principal components analysis is proposed as a means of investigating whether and how the covariance structure of multiple response variables changes over time, after removing a smooth function for the mean, and this is motivated and illustrated by using data from an aircraft technology study and a lake ecosystem. Inferential procedures are investigated in the cases of independent and dependent errors, with a bootstrapping procedure proposed to detect changes in the direction or variance of components.
