Frequently analyses of climate data, whether model-generated or observed, require the simultaneous assessment of the significance of multiple statistics. A commonly ocurring situation is the test of a hypothesis for the difference in means of two fields of data, e.g. the average wintertime temperature anomaly pattern over a net of European stations in each of two sets of GCM simulations. Regardless of whether the problem is approached with the multivariate methods described in Chapter 8 or as a collection of individual or local significance tests, the collective or field significance of the results depends crucially on the number of data points or tests and their interdependence.
