The "Statistical Analysis of Extremes in Geophysical Science" is a reading and seminar group with the aim of bringing atmospheric scientists and statisticians together to discuss how to investigate extreme values in weather, climate and socio-economic contexts; primarily through reading and discussing relevant papers, but also through seminars.

The next scheduled meeting for this group is TBD

Remote participation is sometimes possible, and when it is, we generally like to have at least two weeks advance notice. Send an email to Eric Gilleland to request remote participation.

Topics for this reading 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
