  • [1] Statistical analysis is made of rare, extreme geophysical events recorded in historical data – counting the number of events k with sizes that exceed chosen thresholds during specific durations of time τ.Under transformations that stabilize data and model-parameter variances, the most likely Poisson-event occurrence rate,k/τ, applies for frequentist inference and, also, for Bayesian inference with a Jeffreys prior that ensures posterior invariance under changes of variables. Frequentist… CONTINUE READING
