Living reference work entry


The topic of this contribution is the statistical analysis of climate time series. The data sets consist of monthly temperature means and monthly precipitation amounts gained at three German weather stations. Emphasis lies on the methods of time series analysis, comprising plotting, modeling, and predicting climate values in the near future.
