About the journal

Dynamics and Statistics of the Climate System provides a high-quality forum for the interdisciplinary field of quantitative climate research. The journal encourages the interaction between physicists, statisticians, mathematicians, computer scientists and earth scientists in the development of new models and methods applied to the analysis of the climate system.

It seeks to:

  • Provide a home for research which straddles the scope of a number of journals across disciplines, and which will be developed in a form and with sufficient background to be accessible to a wide range of climate scientists;
  • Make a significant contribution towards the understanding of the climate system at all levels;
  • Provide the base upon which quantitative climate research will continue to grow and develop.

Dynamics and Statistics of the Climate System will publish research in the mathematical, statistical, physical and computational aspects of the climate system, including, but not limited to, the following:


  • Calibration, tuning and emulation
  • Computational modelling
  • Data assimilation
  • Deterministic and stochastic PDE techniques
  • Dynamical systems and bifurcation theory
  • Ensemble techniques
  • Model hierarchies
  • Multiple scales
  • Numerical algorithms
  • Risk and sensitivity analysis, decision support systems
  • Statistical mechanics
  • Stochastic parameterization
  • Theory and estimation of extreme events
  • Uncertainty quantification and prediction

As applied to:

  • Atmospheric sciences
  • Biogeochemistry
  • Climate variability 
  • Ecosystem dynamics
  • Geophysical fluid dynamics
  • Hydrology
  • Ice dynamics and structure
  • Oceanography
  • Paleoclimate
  • Resilience and tipping points
  • Severe impacts
  • Sustainability

Authors are encouraged to ensure that their articles have interdisciplinary appeal, and multidisciplinary authorship is welcomed. Authors will be offered the opportunity to link to or to publish as supplementary material any datasets or computer code used in producing their research results.
