Upcoming seminar by Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick on Stats and Heatwaves

Date/Time:Monday November 5th, 4pmLocation:RC-4082, The Red Centre, UNSW  Heatwaves are changing. What role does statistics have in understanding these changes? Heatwaves are increasing in their frequency, intensity and duration. Loosely described as prolonged periods of excessive heat, statistical techniques underpin their measurement, understanding their changes, the physical mechanisms behind these changes, the role anthropogenic climate change plays, and estimates of uncertainty (or certainty)  surrounding these factors.  This talk will explore the vital role statistics has behind heatwaves, making our understanding of these high-impact events possible. Dr Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick is an ARC Future… Read More
