This article proposes a development of detecting patches of additive outliers in autoregressive time series models. The procedure improves the existing detection methods via Gibbs sampling. We combine the Bayesian method and the Kalman smoother to present some candidate models of outlier patches and the best model with the minimum Bayesian information criterion (BIC) is selected among them. We propose that this combined Bayesian and Kalman method (CBK) can reduce the masking and swamping effects about detecting patches of additive outliers. The correctness of the method is illustrated by simulated data and then by analyzing a real set of observations.
