Multivariate Statistical Modeling: POP-Model as a First Order Approximation
The study of a time series is a standard exercise in statistical analysis. A time series, which is an ordered set of random variables, and its associated probability distribution are called a stochastic process. This mathematical construct can be applied to time series of climate variables. Strictly speaking, a climate variable is generated by deterministic processes. However since a myriad of processes contribute to the behavior of a climate variable, a climate time series behaves like one generated by a stochastic process. More detailed discussion of this problem is given by H. von Storch and Zwiers (1999).
