Can someone give a layman's description of "infinite-dimensional statistics"?

My (very limited) take: statistical tests and procedures are based, among other things, on the number of variables or 'degrees of freedom'. When one is dealing with complex situations, such as a climate model where there are millions of degrees of freedom, it becomes pertinent to use infinite-dimensional statistics.
