Short Summer Course in Climate Extremes Analysis


Dear colleague,

Climate Risk Analysis is giving a Short Summer Course in Climate
Extremes Analysis in Bad Gandersheim, Germany, from 19 to 22 September
2017. Below are the major points. The registration site has all details.

Please let me mention one detail here: A highlight will be the provision
of a new software for optimally estimating the heavy tails of a
statistical distribution (risk analysis).

It would be great if this course would be of interest to you or your
students. Thanks for circulating, and sorry in case you receive this (or
similar) announcements several times.

Best wishes

Manfred

Dr. Manfred Mudelsee
CEO, Climate Risk Analysis (CRA)

P.s.: We would be happy to support participants who wish to apply
externally for a travel or conference grant to be able to come here.
(That means, CRA itself does not offer funding.) The support may be in
the form of a recommendation letter. In that case, please attach also
more details about your research, your person, and a draft of the grant
proposal.

*Summary:* This Short Summer Course in Climate Extremes Analysis is
specifically tailored to the needs of PhD students, postdocs and
professional researchers in climatology, ecology, environmental
sciences, geosciences, meteorology or hydrology. We assume a basic
knowledge in calculus and statistics, the rest you will learn here. 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.

*A highlight of this course will be the provision of a new software for
optimally estimating the heavy tails of a statistical distribution (risk
analysis).*

*Summer courses:* There are in total three summer courses offered by
CRA. First, the Basic Course in Climate Time Series Analysis (7 to 11
August 2017) assumes basic knowledge in calculus. Second, the Advanced
Course in Climate Time Series Analysis (4 to 8 September 2017) assumes
further basic knowledge in statistics. Both courses cover the most
important statistical techniques: regression, spectral analysis, extreme
values and correlation. Third, the Short Course in Climate Extremes
Analysis (19 to 22 September 2017) assumes basic knowledge in calculus
and statistics; it covers regression and especially extreme values.
