A new blog on extremes (thanks Andrea)

Coming events:
The 9th international conference on Extreme Value Analysis will take place at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor during the week of June 15-June 19, 2015.

- LSCE/IPSL (near Paris, in France) is opening three 2-year positions (starting in September 2014) on studying climate extreme events and their relation to climate change. These positions cover research on event attribution and interpretation, as well as data analysis and processing methods, and visualizations / representations of extreme events in the context of climate change. contact
