book cover: Patterns Identification and Data Mining in Weather and Climate

Complexity, nonlinearity and high-dimensionality constitute the main features of the weather and climate. Advances in computer power and observing systems have led to the generation and accumulation of large-scale weather and climate data, which beg for exploration and analysis.

The book presents, from different perspectives, most available, novel and conventional, approaches used to analyse multivariate time series in atmospheric and oceanographic science to identify patterns of variability, teleconnections, and reduce dimensionality.

The book discusses in detail linear and nonlinear methods to identify stationary and propagating patterns of spatio-temporal, single and combined fields. The book also presents machine learning with a particular focus on the main methods used in climate science.
