Objective:

The Center for Integrating Statistical and Environmental Science supports research in the development of new statistical methods for addressing environmental problems and for integrating the use of statistics throughout the process of risk assessment. The Center's main objective is to advance the use of statistical methods to assess the state of the physical environment and its impact on human and ecological health. This research investigates the recovery in stratospheric and total ozone using various modeling techniques. Work has been divided into five subprojects: (1) analysis of ground station total ozone data for detection of trend turnaround and recovery; (2) analysis of satellite total ozone data for detection of trend turnaround and recovery; (3) trend analysis of upper stratospheric ozone data for evidence of turnaround; (4) statistical diagnostic analysis of numerical models; and (5) combining information from statistical analysis and numerical models.
