Climate change is definitely a hot topic (no pun intended) and the debate can be lively, at least in political circles. However, consensus may be on the way, thanks to statistics. In a paper published last December in the SIAM Journal on Uncertainty Quantification authors Matthew Heaton, Tamara Greasby, and Stephen Sain propose a statistical model that consolidates climate change information from observation-based data sets and climate models. Their model allows the final data product to provide an aggregate measure of climate rather than be restricted to individiual weather data sets.
In a paper published last December in the SIAM Journal on Uncertainty Quantification, authors Matthew Heaton, Tamara Greasby, and Stephan Sain propose a statistical hierarchical Bayesian model that consolidates climate change information from observation-based data sets and climate models.
