Statistical modeling and computing for climate data
The motivation for this thesis is to provide improved statistical models and approaches to statistical computing for analyzing climate patterns over short and long distances. In particular, information needs for water managers motivate my research. Statistical models and computing techniques exist in a careful balance because climate data are generated by physical processes that can yield computationally intractable statistical models. Simplified or approximate statistical models are often required for practical data analyses. Critically, model complexity is moderated as much by research needs ...
