This Short Summer Course in Climate Extremes 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.
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).
