Sources of climatological data. Climatological bulletins and atlases. Climatological data on Internet. Nature of climatological series: random and non-random part. Annual cycle, ways of computation and properties. Trend and long-term oscillations. Calculation of climatological normals for real data. Stationary stochastic processes, ergodicity, estimation of the autocorrelation function. Pseudo-random numbers. White noise, general linear process, AR(1), AR(2) processes, higher-order models. Fitting the model to measured data. Simulations of climatological time series.
Exercises comprise the processing and analysis of real time series. This includes writing programs (in Matlab) for analysis and simulation of time series, as well as interpreting the results.

To be able to:
list and describe the sources of climate data
to explain the nature of climatological time series and identify various time scales
calculate annual cycle and trend
define and explain the notion of stochastic process and stationarity
define white noise and general linear process
define models of autoregression and moving average and interpret their properties in climatological context
fit theoretical stochastic model to real time series and interpret the obtained results.
