Editorial Reviews

Review

"I would strongly recommend this book... To those who already posses the first edition and are satisfied users, you would be hard-pressed to do without the second edition."
--Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"What makes this book specific to meterology, and not just to applied statistics, are it's extensive examples and two chapters on statistcal forecasting and forecast evaluation."
-William (Matt) Briggs, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

I judge the usefulness of a book by how quickly I can learn something new and apply it to the problem I am currently working on. Most statistics books, judged by this criteria, fail miserably. But here is a book that not only succeeds, but succeeds so well I actually find myself getting excited about reading the next chapter, which has nothing to do with the problem at hand! By confining himself to just a handful of simple data sets, Wilks makes it possible to work though the examples in detail and in a variety of ways. But the most important benefit to me is that I can immediately turn his examples into software code (I use IDL), which I can use to solve my problem. Unlike so many books, which provide the broad theoretical strokes, but leave the details in shadow, Wilks explains the details in simple, straightforward language. His explanation of harmonic analysis and FFT spectral analysis was so crystal clear I believe it was the first time I thought I truly understood this important concept. I can imagine there will be statisticians who will not like this book. But for those of us working with environmental data who need to know some statistics to get our work done, this book is a godsend.

Format: Hardcover
Like the first edition, this book is an excellent and thorough overview of statistical methods used in the atmospheric sciences.

The main updates which are included in the second edition are the six final chapters (chapters 9-14) which cover multi-variate statistical methods as an expansion of that covered in one chapter of the first edition.

An excellent reference text for many geophysical researchers.

The second edition nicely extends and improves the original text. Along with Statistical Analysis in Climate Research, which is pitched at slightly more advanced audience, this book provides an excellent introduction to statistical methods in meteorology and climatology. Highly recommended.

the book and very good, especially for applications in my area.
Condition in relation to the product, I confess I was a little sad. I bought it used, but I did not expect to have to handle with care the book because the pages may drop in the future.
