Abstract

"Empirical-statistical downscaling (ESD) has been applied to local climate/weather studies for years, but there are few — if any — textbooks on the subject. It is also anticipated that ESD will become more important and commonplace in the future, as anthropogenic global warming proceeds. Thus, a textbook on ESD will be important for next-generation climate scientists."
