In this study, we show an application of Archimedean copulas for meteorological data, which may be of interest in its own right. Hence we take monthly lowest and highest air temperature records from 1951 to 2005 in Tehran, and then investigate a suitable family of Archimedean copulas to fit this data. Also characterize the interval of suitable, and also the best copula parameter. Moreover basic properties of Archimedean copulas will be presented.

    A comparison of three global reanalyses is conducted based on probability density functions of daily maximum and minimum temperature at 2-m and 1000-hPa levels. The three reanalyses compare very favorably in both maximum and minimum temperatures at 1000 hPa, in both the mean and the 99.7th and...
