Short Summer Course in Climate Extreme Analysis

19-22 September 2017, Bad Gandersheim, Germany

Climate Risk Analysis (CRA) is organizing a Short Summer Course in Climate Extremes Analysis in Bad Gandersheim, Germany, from 19-22 September 2017.

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. A basic knowledge in calculus and statistics is required. 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).
