Course Aims

The course will provide students with the knowledge of using statistical methods in energy and environmental science.  Analysis methods, such as probability, random variable (discrete & continuous), parameter estimation, confidence internal and hypothesis testing, inferences involving one and two populations, simple linear regression, analysis of variance and goodness-of-fit test, are very helpful for students to understand the physical processes occurring in the environment, and to work on climate prediction.  Students are required to use the knowledge learnt from this course to analyse the data with computational tools, such as Python.  Overall, students would gain the understanding of statistical methods in energy and environmental science and they would be capable to analyse the data using statistical methods.
