The application of complex networks to study complex phenomena, including the Internet, social networks, food networks, and others, has seen a growing interest in recent years. In particular, the use of complex networks and network theory to analyze the behavior of the climate system is an emerging topic. This newfound interest is due to the difficulty of analyzing climate data - this analysis is notoriously difficult due to the strong spatio-temporal dependencies, multivariate nature, seasonal behavior, and nonlinear phenomena inherent in the climate system.
