Abstract : The major effort of the contract has been the development of practical statistical prediction techniques including the identification of the proper variables to be included in the prediction model. The research of this contract is divided into three main groups: Chang detection techniques for stationary time series; Other results in time series analysis. This research includes estimation of coherence between two time series when the phase is rapidly changing, recursive estimation of regression parameters, estimation of the spectral density with unequally spaced or missing meteorological observations; Statistical meteorology. This research includes meteorological prediction and forecasting, statistical methods using unequally spaced aircraft observations, and atmospheric pollution effect on rainfall trends. (Author)
