The purpose of this book is to help the climatologist understand the basic precepts of the statistician's art and to provide some of the background needed to apply statistical methodology correctly and usefully. The book is self contained: introductory material, standard advanced techniques, and the specialized techniques used specifically by climatologists are all contained within this one source. There are a wealth of real-world examples drawn from the climate literature to demonstrate the need, power and pitfalls of statistical analysis in climate research.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a wonderful reference to better understand the state of the art of climatological modeling." Environmental Geology

Book Description

Climatology is, to a large degree, the study of the statistics of our climate. The powerful tools of mathematical statistics therefore find wide application in climatological research. The purpose of this comprehensive book is to help the climatologist understand the basic precepts of the statistician's art and to provide some of the background needed to apply statistical methodology correctly and usefully. Suitable for graduate courses on statistics for climatic, atmospheric and oceanic science, this book will also be valuable as a reference source for researchers in climatology, meteorology, atmospheric science, and oceanography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great statistics book for geophysists February 12, 2008
Format:Paperback
I am a phd-student in spacephysics. "Statistical analysis in Climate Research" is the statistics book which has been most relevant for me that I have read until this time. The information density is very high in this book. It is necessary with some prior knowledge about statistics to read this book. It does not contain any proofs, but many references to other books. The most important thing about this book for me is that it provides solutions to many of the problems one encounter when analyzing data in geophysics. Especially good is it that it discuss situations where the "ideal" assumptions used in normal statistics books are not fulfilled.

People interested in the subject of why we know humans caused climate change will enjoy this book. It explains all one could possibly wish to know on the subject, including Dr. Mann's _Nature_ trick. Paleoclimatology methodologies cannot be understood without first reading a book of this sort.

The book is an introductory work, written specifically for climatologists, but no attempt has been made to "dumb down" the subject: people with zero knowledge on the subject will not understand much of the material, and they will have to consult other reference regarding some methodologies, terms, and phrases.

I got my copy for $35 in the "bargain bin" of a bookstore in Santa Fe. Amazon's price is what most copies are going for (about $80), so it is a fair market cost.
