Course in Advanced Statistics 2014

03.11.2014 - 07.11.2014

Our annual course in Advanced statistics will be held November 4-7 and is given by David Stephenson and Theodoros Economou, University of Exeter. The course will be held at Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen.

ourse description

This is a 4-day intensive course on statistical modelling concepts for climate scientists. Since it is impossible in such a short course to go into any great depth, this course aims instead to convey the fundamental modelling concepts in statistics and an understanding and ability of how to use them correctly to interpret climate data. The course will consist of nine 1-hour lectures and 8 hours of hands-on computer sessions.
