Special Issue Information
The amount of measured and modeled data in atmospheric research is increasing at a quickening pace. All these data need to be analyzed with appropriate methodology. At the same time, complex experimental setups are bringing only small numbers of data for answering specific questions, but traditionally used methods are not suitable for analyzing these data. Currently, researchers in atmospheric sciences are developing new methods for analysis and bringing methodology from other fields to answers questions from big and small data. Atmosphere recognizes that these methods need to be introduced and this Special Issue is a response to that need.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to introduce advanced statistical methodology for the use of atmospheric scientists wrestling with complex data and the research questions related to them. The main emphasis will be given to methods for multivariable data, capable of finding dependencies from a high number of variables, and advanced time series analysis methods, capable of taking into account the autocorrelative structure of data and dealing with nonstationary or heteroscedastic time series.
We seek methodological studies analyzing measured or modeled atmospheric data, as well as studies introducing new and interesting results gained with statistical methods. We also welcome review papers summarizing existing methodology as well as brief communications introducing solutions to specific problems.
