Statistical Analysis of Extremes in Geophysical Science Reading/Working Group
Topics for this group may include:
- Extreme-value statistical theory
- Extremes in meteorology and/or climatology
- Societal impacts of extreme weather events
- Forecast verification for extreme events
- Software for statistics of extremes
We are currently doing a short series on large-scale indicators for severe weather.
History of this GroupThis group was started as a reading group by Philippe Naveau at the University of Colorado here in Boulder, Colorado in 2003 to augment a course he was teaching at the time on Extreme Value Analysis. Rick Katz continued the group here at NCAR for a few months, and then after a short hiatus, the group was re-formed in 2005 by Eric Gilleland at NCAR with help from Rick Katz and Dan Cooley. The idea at this time was to be a reading and working group with a focus on connecting extreme value analysis and possible applications between atmospheric scientists and statisticians. The group has evolved over time since then, and is now mostly a reading and seminar group, but still with the same goal.
