UL Extremes Webinar

High-dimensional inference for max-stable processes

Transmissão através de Videoconferência

Speaker: Boris Beranger (School of Mathematics and Statistics, University New South Wales, Sydney).

Droughts, high temperatures and strong winds are key causes of the recent bushfires that have touched a major part of the Australian territory. Such extreme events seem to appear with increasing frequency, creating an urgent need to better understand the behaviour of extreme environmental phenomena. Max-stable processes are a widely popular tool to model spatial extreme events with several flexible models available in the literature. For inference on max-stable models, exact likelihood estimation becomes quickly computationally intractable as the number of spatial locations grows, limiting their applicability to large study regions or fine grids. In this talk, we introduce two methodologies based on composite likelihoods, to circumvent this issue. First, we assume the occurrence times of maxima available in order to incorporate the Stephenson-Tawn concept into the composite likelihood framework. Second, we propose to aggregate the information between locations into histograms and to derive a composite likelihood variation for these summaries. The significant improvements in performance of each estimation procedures is established through simulation studies and illustrated on two temperature datasets from Australia.

The UL Extremes Webinar is an initiative for bringing together on a regular basis (about once a month) all those interested in Extreme Value Theory and Applications. It should be an opportunity to share and discuss most recent research advances in the field. Emphasis shall be given to work developed in Portugal or with major Portuguese contribution.

11h00-12h00

At AppEEL, we aim to advance the study of evolution from an inter- and transdisciplinary approach and to identify how biological evolutionary theories can be applied to the epistemological, sociocultural and linguistic domains.

The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the details of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, including, but not exclusive to, public and private stakeholders, students and teachers, and media professionals.

Conversa com Galopim de Carvalho.

The course aims at providing an introduction to stable isotopes ratios as tools to understand global, ecosystem and community level bio/geo cycles; light isotopes: H, N, C, O and S isotopes, geo cycles and ecological significance; sampling and analytical methodologies in stable isotope analysis.

This course aims to evidence the importance of natural history collections for the study of biodiversity, to show new tools and approaches to extract and disseminate biodiversity data from natural history collections and to increase awareness of young researchers for the scientific and cultural value of Natural History Museums.
