RSS/Environmental Statistics Study Group meeting
Statistical modelling of climate-related environmental records
Wednesday April 30, 2003, 2pm
Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol St, London
Tea 3:30, Meeting ends 5:00pm
One of the key research questions for climatologists, palaeo-climatologists,
quaternary geologists and archaeologists concern how climate has varied on
different time-scales over the past 15,000 years and on the synchronicity
of such changes in different parts of the environment around the world.
Improved understanding of past climate variability is important in trying
to understand how present climate is changing and may further change in the
The focus for the meeting will be discussion of the statistical modelling
of periodicities, uncertainties and synchronicity of climate change and
statistical age modelling for different environmental records, to be able
to compare proxy-derived climate indicators on a common age scale.
