Winter Courses in Climate Data Analysis
Manfred Mudelsee is giving Winter Courses in Climate Data Analysis in Bad Gandersheim, Heckenbeck, Germany.
Advanced Course in Climate Time Series Analysis
9 to 13 January 2017
Special Course in Climate Extremes Analysis
16 to 20 January 2017
*Summary* The courses are tailored to the needs of PhD students,
postdocs and professional researchers in climatology, 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.
Assumed level in both courses: Knowledge in calculus and basic
statistics (e.g., random variable, expectation, variance).
How do the courses differ? The Advanced Course in Climate Time Series
Analysis is rather broad, it covers the major estimation problems in
applied climatology. The Special Course in Climate Extremes Analysis
focuses on the detection and statistical analysis of extreme events.
Both courses are based on the same textbook (Mudelsee 2014). For an
intensive two-week training, you may consider taking both courses (at a
