In recent years, complex network analysis facilitated the identification of universal and unexpected patterns in complex climate systems. However, the analysis and representation of a multiscale complex relationship that exists in the global climate system are limited. A logical first step in addressing this issue is to construct multiple networks over different timescales. Therefore, we propose to apply the wavelet multiscale correlation (WMC) similarity measure, which is a combination of two… 
Network-based identification and characterization of teleconnections on different scales
TLDR
This study characterizes the interactions between the cells of a global SST data set at different temporal and spatial scales using climate networks that investigate the correlation between the SST time series at a range of scales allowing instantaneously deeper insights into the correlation patterns compared to traditional methods like empirical orthogonal functions or classical correlation analysis.
Disentangling the multi-scale effects of sea-surface temperatures on global precipitation: A coupled networks approach.
TLDR
The proposed approach combines time-scale decomposition by means of a discrete wavelet transform with the concept of coupled climate network analysis to capture the interdependence between global fields of sea-surface temperature (SST) and precipitation (P) at multiple temporal scales.
Recurrence flow measure of nonlinear dependence
Couplings in complex real-world systems are often nonlinear and scale-dependent. In many cases, it is crucial to consider a multitude of interlinked variables and the strengths of their correlations
Optimal design of hydrometric station networks based on complex network analysis
TLDR
A new node-ranking measure – the weighted degree–betweenness (WDB) measure – is proposed that effectively quantifies the importance of rain gauges, although the benefits of the method need to be investigated in more detail.
