Varying coefficient models have widely been applied to many practical fields for exploring dynamic patterns of the regression relationships. In this study, we propose a robust scenario of SiZer significant zero crossing of derivatives inference approach based on the local least absolute deviation fitting procedure and the bootstrap confidence interval to uncover the statistically significant features of the coefficientfunctions in a varying coefficient model under different smoothing scales. The simulation study shows that the proposed SiZer approach is quite robust to outliers and performs well in finding the significant features of the coefficient functions. Furthermore, a real environmental data set is analyzed to demonstrate the application of the proposed approach.
