Statistical analysis of extreme river flows

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Floods are recurrent events that can have a catastrophic impact. In this work we are interested in the analysis of a data set of gauged daily flows from the Whiteadder Water river, Scotland. Using statistic techniques based on extreme value theory, we estimate several extreme value parameters, including extreme quantiles and return periods of high levels.
