And here we go! Another EGU has started today, all in all my fifth. It is always nice to spend some days in Vienna at the start of spring, so also this year the Austrian capital is offering us some sun for the start. Again I took the night train to Vienna, this time with a massive delay (5 hours).
After the reception last night the conference really started today with the first sessions. I started with an interesting time series analysis session. The talks switched a bit through the topics, some quite mathematical, some very detailed in their methodology. Next stop was the big data and machine learning session, which was really busy. Much too many scientists wanted to get in, which is understandable how these topics are hyped currently.
After lunch it was time for the sea level sessions with great talks. As this is still a topic of much interest for me I always enjoy an interesting session on that topic. The last presentation session of the day was for me the one on dynamical extremes, before the day was closed with the poster session.
So all in all a quite statistical day at the start, the next day will certainly look a bit different. My contributions will come up on Wednesday with a poster and on Thursday with a talk, also both times quite statistical topics, but more on that closer to the mid of the week.
