This course is focused on a practical understanding and application of statistical tools for environmental datasets. We cover a range of topics, including hypothesis testing, regression models, spatiotemporal modeling, and Bayesian approaches. Over the second half of the quarter, students work in small teams to complete and present a project analyzing an environmental dataset of their choice.
