About the Authors
  • It is now widely recognized that the climate system is governed by nonlinear, multi-scale processes, whereby memory effects and stochastic forcing by fast processes, such as weather and convective systems, can induce regime behavior. Motivated by present difficulties in understanding the climate system and to aid the improvement of numerical weather and climate models, this book gathers contributions from mathematics, physics and climate science to highlight the latest developments and current research questions in nonlinear and stochastic climate dynamics. Leading researchers discuss some of the most challenging and exciting areas of research in the mathematical geosciences, such as the theory of tipping points and of extreme events including spatial extremes, climate networks, data assimilation and dynamical systems. This book provides graduate students and researchers with a broad overview of the physical climate system and introduces powerful data analysis and modeling methods for climate scientists and applied mathematicians.

    • Provides an integrative overview of nonlinear, non-stationary, non-Gaussian, non-Markovian and stochastic methods in climate science
    • Presents both a thorough review of the field and an examination of cutting-edge research
    • Considers a range of spatial and temporal scales relevant to all disciplines in atmospheric physics, from weather prediction to paleoclimate modelling

    Christian L. E. Franzke, Universität Hamburg
    Christian L. E. Franzke is a research scientist at Universität Hamburg. His research interests include nonlinear atmospheric and climate dynamics, weather and climate risks, dynamics of extreme events, and stochastic and multi-scale modelling. He has developed new methods for the nonlinear analysis of paleoclimate data, station data and climate model data, and has developed nonlinear stochastic climate models.
