Palaeoclimate and Climate Dynamics - Publications and Resources

Online Resources

The course Climate Dynamics, Probability and Statistics (offered at the University of Tübingen) teaches the basics of programming, statistics, and common geoscience application of machine learning techniques. The introductory and practical part of the course is available online and includes a series of tutorials and exercises designed to (a) familiarise yourself with programming in general and (b) teach you about the application of statistics for common problems in (atmospheric) science.
