Manfred Mudelsee is giving two Climate Data Analysis courses in Bad Gandersheim, Heckenbeck, Germany, in January 2017 for students, postdocs and researchers.

Courses

1. Advanced Course in Climate Time Series Analysis (9-13 January 2017)

2. Special Course in Climate Extremes Analysis (16-20 January 2017)

Description

The courses are tailored to the needs of PhD students, postdocs and professional researchers in climatology, ecology, environmental sciences, geosciences, meteorology and hydrology.

- 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.
- Acquire the theoretical basis for understanding the tools and interpreting the results.
- Learn to determine the various sources of uncertainty in data, climate models and statistical estimation.
- Become aware of the three major pitfalls in climate data analysis: ignored autocorrelation, violated Gaussian assumption and ignored multiplicity of hypothesis tests.

Requirements

Knowledge in calculus and basic statistics (e.g. random variable, expectation, variance) is required.

How do the courses differ?

The Advanced Course in Climate Time Series Analysis is broad, covering 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 reduced rate).

Deadlines

Register by 30 December 2016.
