About the Authors
  • The risks posed by climate change and its effect on climate extremes are an increasingly pressing societal problem. This book provides an accessible overview of the statistical analysis methods which can be used to investigate climate extremes and analyse potential risk. The statistical analysis methods are illustrated with case studies on extremes in the three major climate variables: temperature, precipitation, and wind speed. The book also provides datasets and access to appropriate analysis software, allowing the reader to replicate the case study calculations. Providing the necessary tools to analyse climate risk, this book is invaluable for students and researchers working in the climate sciences, as well as risk analysts interested in climate extremes.

    • Provides an interdisciplinary overview of statistics and both current and past climate extremes
    • Explains the big climate questions and presents the statistical methods for helping to solve them
    • Includes data sets and software to enable readers to replicate the case studies outlined in the book, and analyse their own data
