Probability and statistics play an important role in all observational sciences, especially in atmospheric science. Whether an atmospheric scientist is concerned with designing an experiment, evaluating an experiment, or analyzing, modeling, or forecasting climate, assessing the impact of environmental events, statistically or dynamically predicting weather, or characterizing its extremes, probability and statistics are an integral and inescapable aspect of his or her profession.
