We compare three approaches to estimate the distribution of extreme rainfall at ungauged sites. Two approaches rely on the univariate generalized extreme value distribution (GEV). SIGEV interpolates linearly the GEV parameters estimated locally. RFA is a regional method which builds circular homogeneous neighborhood around each site in order to increase the sample size. The observations in the neighborhood, properly normalized, are assumed to follow the same GEV distribution. Then the… CONTINUE READING
