About this book

Climate is a paradigm of a complex system. Analysing climate data is an exciting challenge, which is increased by non-normal distributional shape, serial dependence, uneven spacing and timescale uncertainties.

Climate Time Series Analysis presents bootstrap resampling as a computing-intensive method able to meet the challenge. It shows the bootstrap to perform reliably in the most important statistical estimation techniques: regression, spectral analysis, extreme values and correlation. It explains step by step the bootstrap algorithms (including novel adaptions) and methods for confidence interval construction and tests the accuracy of the algorithms by means of Monte Carlo experiments.
