On behalf of Centre for River And Coastal Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, we are pleased to extend our warmest invitation to you for the online short course on “Climate Variability & Downscaling with R.” This course will expose the participants with essential skills to analyse climate data using the R programming language and employ downscaling techniques for accurate climate projections.
Date: 27 September 2023
Time: 8.45am – 5.15pm
Platform: Online (Webex) – Link will be provided to participant via email
Instructor: Prof. Madya Dr Shamsuddin Shahid
The “Climate Variability & Downscaling with R” online short course is designed for professionals and students interested in climate science, environmental research, and data analysis. Throughout the sessions, participants will delve into the following key topics:
