A weighted occupation time is defined for measure-valued processes and a representation for it is obtained for a class of measure-valued branching random motions on Rd. Considered as a process in its own right, the first and second order asymptotics are found as time t→∞. Specifically the finiteness of the total weighted occupation time is determined as a function of the dimension d, and when infinite, a central limit type renormalization is considered, yielding Gaussian or asymmetric stable generalized random fields in the limit. In one Gaussian case the results are contrasted in high versus low dimensions.
