Climate change seminar examines role of probability and statistics in developing system models

Date/Time: 
2 Mar 2012 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Kenneth McCool, adjunct faculty of mathematics, addresses the American Meteorological Association's (AMS) position on how the "problem" of climate change can be projected in the future. Fundamental to this challenge is the use of probability and statistics in developing models of the climate system. McCool will reference examples of recent advances in analytical methodology, and common misuses of statistics by broadcast meteorologists.
