Abstract. We use multivariate time-series generated by spatially extended systems to reconstruct their entire Lyapunov spectrum. Provided short range, or exponentially decaying, spatial interactions it is possible to approximately reconstruct the Jacobian by a banded matrix. Thus, by applying spatially localised reconstructions of the tangent space we estimate the whole Jacobian. This method circumvents the ``curse of dimensionality'' when trying to spatio-temporally embed the high-dimensional dynamics for extended dynamical systems. The technique is illustrated using coupled map lattices as prototype models for spatio-temporal chaos.
