Short Course in Climate Extremes and Risk Analysis

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Climate Risk Analysis (CRA)

Type: Training Course Date: 02 - 03 Sep 2018 Location: Czech Republic (Olomouc) Venue: Faculty of Science, Palacký University

As part of the 19th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG2018), this short course focuses on statistical methods and data analysis in the field of climate and risk.

Course Content

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).

Climate case studies serve to illustrate the usefulness of the tools: how to make the most of your data by means of statistics—and how to publish it in a research paper.

The course consists of lectures and extensive hands-on training in computer tutorials. The course instructor, Dr. Manfred Mudelsee, trained in physics, geology and statistics, has a long-standing expertise in teaching statistical methods to non-specialists.

Eligibility and Applications

This course is specifically tailored to the needs of PhD students, postdocs and professional researchers in climatology, ecology, environmental sciences, geosciences, meteorology or hydrology. 

Course Fee and Fellowships

The course fee is 490 USD.
