CliMathNet, the Royal Meteorological Society and the Royal Statistical Society are jointly running a small focused workshop on the use of statistical techniques for senior climate scientists.

This course is aimed at climate scientists at the Principal Investigator level and will include lectures / workshops on statistical modelling, inference, Bayesian methods and risk and uncertainity and will include time for discussion of particular problems raised by the participants regarding climate variability and change on global, regional and local scales.

CliMathNet have provided funding for the course, and the Royal Statistical Society are kindly providing a venue, therefore, this course is free to attend, although we do ask that delegates register in advance to attend. The meeting will start at 10am at the Royal Statistical Society in London and lunch will be provided.
