Media reviews
' ... this book ... should form the centrepiece of the climate analyst's reference shelf'. Robert E. Livezey, Nature ' ... an excellent manual for a broad group of applied statisticians.' World Meteorological Organization ' ... an extremely interesting, enlightening and thought provoking read ... I can thoroughly recommend this book to all climate researchers for whom statistics play a central role in research. This publication would also serve extremely well as a text for advanced courses in climatology, meteorology, atmospheric science and oceanography.' International Journal of Climatology '... an excellent addition to the subject literature and I can imagine its being a valuable library resource in support of graduate dissertation work.' Stephen Dorling, Geography and Environmental Science '... for climatologists dabbling in statistics, I would call this an essential text.' Journal of the American Statistical Association 'This single book provides climatologists - whether they work in modeling or in measuring, whether they are professionals seeking references or students starting to learn - with what they need to know about statistical analysis' Computers and Geosciences '... a useful starting point for any mathematician who wishes to learn more about climate research.' Dr David B. Stephenson, Mathematics Today '... a wonderful reference to better understand the state of the art of climatological modeling.' Jorg Matschullat, Environmental Geology '[readers] will gain new insights ... and will certainly get a lot of new ideas.' Meteorologische Zeitschrift ' ... certainly excellent value for your money ...' Computers & Geosciences
