The weekly seminar is organised by the Enlight members: University of the Basque Country, University of Bordeaux and University of Göttingen.

This online seminar aims to provide an in-depth insight into advanced statistical methods in global climate change research and how these methods can be applied.

It will focus on the following topics:

  • Climate change data visualization
  • Generalized regression models
  • Time series analysis
  • Spatial statistics
  • Clustering techniques
  • High-performance data analysis and
  • Climate reconstruction and climate projections.

We invite PhD students who are working with statistical methods in the broad field of climate research as part of their dissertation.

The University of Göttingen is organising the seminar in cooperation with the University of the Basque Country and the University of Bordeaux within the ENLIGHT network. The seminar is a combination of an asynchronous lecture series with a round table as a weekly synchronous, complementary format in which experts from the respective universities engage in a discussion with the doctoral researchers.
