Advanced Summer Course in Climate Time Series Analysis
Advanced Level Statistics for Climate and Hydrology. This Advanced Summer Course in Climate Time Series 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.
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.
