Conference Abstract

Many economists are becoming interested in applying econometric methods (especially time series analysis) to geophysical and climatic data sets. In addition, many climate scientists are recognizing the value of developing and applying increasingly rigorous empirical methods to the rich data sets available in the Earth sciences. 

This interdisciplinary workshop is aimed at sharing expertise and building opportunities for collaboration. We seek papers from both econometrics and climatology that provide good methodological exposition and exploration of the kinds of data sets and techniques available, and the research questions they spark. 

The workshop will be structured to allow extended interaction time so as to stimulate fresh exchanges of perspectives, advanced methodological discussion and new avenues for scholarly collaboration.


Conference fee: The registration fee is $195 (Cdn), which includes the opening reception, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, snacks, and the conference dinner on the 6th. A discounted rate for graduate students is available.
