Summer Courses in Climate Time Series Analysis
Dear colleague from MCRN!
Climate Risk Analysis - Manfred Mudelsee is giving Summer Courses in Climate Time Series Analysis in Bad Gandersheim, Heckenbeck, Germany,
from 8 to 12 August 2016 (basic course)
from 15 to 19 August 2016 (advanced course).
*Summary* The courses are tailored to the needs of PhD students and postdocs in climatology as well as ecology, environmental sciences, geosciences, meteorology and hydrology. You get the required statistical tools and extensive hands-on training to become able to optimally analyse your data and answer the associated questions about the climate.
You acquire the theoretical basis for understanding the tools and interpreting the results. You learn to determine the various sources of uncertainty in data, climate models and statistical estimation. You become aware of the three major pitfalls in climate data analysis: ignored autocorrelation, violated Gaussian assumption and ignored multiplicity of hypothesis tests.
*Basic level* Knowledge in calculus. You do not need any statistical background.
*Advanced level* Knowledge in calculus and basic statistics (e.g., random variable, expectation, variance).
*Registration deadline* 15 July 2016
*Registration and more information*
I would highly appreciate if you could also forward this message to your students and postdocs who may be interested.
Thank you very much and best wishes!
