Course in Advanced Statistics 2015

11.08.2015 - 14.08.2015

Our annual course in Advanced statistics will be held August 11-14 and is given by David Stephenson and Theo Economou from University of Exeter. The course will be held at Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen.

Course 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.
